Alberta Advantage candidate vying for a seat in Leduc-Beaumont
He was the first candidate to be nominated by the party and he's optimistic people in the area are ready for a change.
Gil Poitras is hoping to become the next MLA for Leduc-Beaumont and capture the first ever seat for the Alberta Advantage Party.
The former Beaumont councilor explains where he will put 100 percent of his focus if elected.
"My number one priority is to do what is right for the people of Leduc-Beaumont, that is our mandate, that is in our constitution, that is in everything we stand for is that your MLA represents you in your riding," says Poitras.
Poitras served on Beaumont's council from 2001-2004 and ran for mayor in 2013 and 2017.
Poitras says he plans on having a town hall if elected at least once a month.
The Alberta Advantage platform includes a right to recall elected officials, and a plan to eliminate the Alberta Carbon Tax incrementally over a three year period.
Poitras is running against Robb Conelly from the Alberta Party, Brad Rutherford from the United Conservative Party and NDP incumbent Shaye Anderson. (JSL/THE ONE NEWS)
