Towle working hard to represent constituency’s needs on ongoing basis

Kerry Towle, now your PC MLA for the Innisfail-Sylvan Lake constituency, formerly, when she was the Wildrose MLA

Dear Editor,

Kerry Towle, now your PC MLA for the Innisfail-Sylvan Lake constituency, formerly, when she was the Wildrose MLA, was perhaps the most effective opposition MLA in Alberta history.

She played a large part in getting rid of an unwanted premier and successfully promoting a great number of Wildrose-initiated policies. When her Wildrose Party became dysfunctional, Kerry chose to continue fighting for those policies by joining the renewed government team led by Jim Prentice. Kerry is now well on her way to ensuring those policies become law and is working hard to represent her constituency’s needs on an ongoing basis.

It is difficult to understand why some Wildrose supporters, instead of being proud of Kerry’s successes, are mad about her actions and they themselves want to do the same by crossing over to become a PC in an attempt to end her political career.

Kerry crossed over to become more effective at promoting policies important to this constituency and better representing her constituents in the decision-making process, lending towards a better Alberta for all. These disgruntled Wildrosers are crossing over for some sort of sick revenge.

My advice to these disgruntled Wildrosers is, if you are a true Wildrose supporter, then you have plenty of work to do rebuilding your party, getting control of it back from the radical fringe.

If you truly want to switch to the PC Party, then vote for the candidate you feel will most effectively represent you in the Prentice government, and don’t be influenced by a pack of vengeful radicals.

Alex Forsberg,
