MLA MacIntyre to host open house at new office location

Residents of Sylvan Lake and area are invited to join Don MacIntyre, MLA Innisfail-Sylvan Lake, on Friday, December 18

Residents of Sylvan Lake and area are invited to join Don MacIntyre, MLA Innisfail-Sylvan Lake, on Friday, December 18 at his new constituency office located in Hewlett Park where he will be hosting an open house.

The Wildrose Party MLA moved into his new office around four weeks ago and is inviting the public to receive a tour of the location but also join him for ‘Coffee and Conversation’ from 2-4 p.m.

Not only is the Sylvan Lake resident excited to have a new office space in Sylvan, he added he is thrilled to be back face to face with his constituents. He added he hopes to let folks know they are here and to give people from across the riding a chance to meet their MLA and talk about the issues that matter to them.

“On any given day we receive many dozens and some days hundreds of emails, and of course there are always many phone calls,” saidMacIntyre. “But they are not a substitute for having a great conversation face to face. It’s important for me to personally meet the people I serve, to put a face to the name, and get to know as many of these dear folks as possible.”

He informed the upcoming Coffee and Conversation at the new office is intended to be an informal visit to allow folks of this riding to meet with him face to face and let him know their concerns. MacIntyre added this allows him to better equip himself to better represent the people in the legislature.

“I truly look forward to meeting as many folks as I can,” said MacIntyre.

In addition to hearing concerns, the MLA will also be available to answer any questions individuals may have.

“Democracy is supposed to be governance of the people, by the people, for the people transparency is vital to creating trust between a government and its people,” said MacIntyre. “Accountability is also vital to creating trust between a government and its people. In recent weeks we have all witnessed what happens when that trust is broken, when a government stubbornly refuses to be transparent or accountable to its people.”

MacIntyre, who is a resident of Sylvan Lake, had been driving to the main office in Innisfail with a small rarely used space being rented here in town. He said he feels that since he lives in Sylvan Lake and given the size of Sylvan Lake it only made logistical sense to move here.

‘Coffee and Conversation’ with Don MacIntyre, MLA Innisfail-Sylvan Lake, will be held Friday, December 18 from 2-4 p.m. at #2 160 HewlettPark Landing.
