I LOVE LIVING IN CALGARY-ELBOW!
Calgary-Elbow is an amazing community and must have representation that is both clued-in to our past and looking to our future. I am deeply in tune with the key issues facing Calgary-Elbow.
2013 Flood - after a day helping out my Calgary-Elbow community neighbours.
My opponent doesn't live in our community. While this is allowed legally, folks are surprised by this fact. For good reason - as we expect our elected representatives to understand the little things that make our community tick. From what I hear at the door, you do too!
Calgary-Elbow deserves more attention from Edmonton than we have received in recent years. Edmonton was out of sync with us and not listening prior to 2015 - and they are still not listening. Currently we have no seat at the government table. Calgary-Elbow must be a part of key decisions that need to be made in this province.
I know that many of you have expressed concern that the UCP has not taken a policy position on upstream flood mitigation. The party's policy platform is still being developed. I commit to championing Calgary-Elbow's position on RAPID delivery of upstream Elbow flood mitigation (i.e. the Springbank SR-1).
I am excited to be part of the new UCP - a party that promotes a modern "get out of the way" approach to business, a small government brand of conservative politics, focusing on:
- Balancing the budget and reducing our debt;
- Supporting upstream flood mitigation, first and foremost through the Springbank Dry Dam project; and
- Eliminating the job-killing carbon tax;
I’ve lived in Calgary-Elbow my entire life, and have worked and volunteered tirelessly to improve our great community. My parents did. My grandparents did too. I am both community-minded AND business-oriented!
I pledge to be OUR voice in Edmonton and not Edmonton’s voice in Calgary-Elbow. We must show that as conservatives we learned from our experience in 2015. The old "top down" approach to governing IS SIMPLY UNACCEPTABLE. Unlike my opponent, the only endorsement I want is yours - the UCP members residing in Calgary-Elbow.
I am Chris Davis and, with your support, I am ready, willing and able to take on the privilege of representing the UCP in our Calgary-Elbow.
