Annie Get Your Gun

Rory J. Koopmans, B. Admin., #6, 14504-108 Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta T5N 1G8

October XVIIIth, MMXVII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

Congrats on your new Parliamentary Secretary of Education Annie McKitrick, MLA, B. Sci., M. Ed., New Democratic, Sherwood Park. Hopefully she'll be a great asset to you in helping get proper funding to students & classrooms directly. As the mother of two adopted children, she can be very good on encouraging adoption of children to good families who might not otherwise be able to have their own children. Thus giving them a chance to be educated in Alberta classrooms with a solid family foundation.

Broadway,

Rory

Dear Dave:

Funny how there is such a lack of depth to NDP MLA backbenches that Rachel has to appoint a former Red Tory in Hon. Sandra Jansen, MLA, New Democratic, Calgary-North West as Minister of Infrastructure. I wonder how many noses are out of joint here?!

"Have Patience, Have Patience, Don't Be In Such A Hurry!"

Rory J. Koopmans, B. Admin., 15902-100A Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta T5P 0L8

October XVIth, MMXVII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

As my mom, the world's greatest teacher ever the late Mrs. June C. Koopmans, B. Ed. reminds us from upstairs: in today's 24/7 fast paced world we need here at Executive Dissertations to remind folks driving by, entering, exiting, & leaving polling stations to have a little extra patience. An election worker may be in the bathroom or attending to a matter outside the voting area so you may have to wait a bit. Plus many polling stations are in & around schools. As a result @VisionZeroYEG reminds voters to be patient & adhere to all speed limits, especially with students coming in & out of school, & parents not just there to vote, they are going to be there to drop off or pick up their kids.

Nenshi Versus Smith

Rory J. Koopmans, B. Admin., Beltline Tim Horton's Courtesy Wifi, 1211-12 Avenue SW, Calgary, Alberta T3C 3S7

October XVth, MMXVII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

Here in Cowtown it sure is funny to watch the whining sissy/fairy/nancy boy Mayor Naheed Nenshi (who still has his mommy cook for him every night) complain that his main competitor Bill Smith has "too much money." Naheed didn't complain when he was at the top of the money heap the last two mayoral election cycles & all he has done is screw up Calgary this last term. His deadbeat progressive ideas are leading to a brain drain in both the corporate & union sectors. Billy is more organized, & the big money is behind him because he is running the kind of quality election campaign that Naheed used to. Candidate Nenshi is just sad that if he loses his mayor's chair, he'll lose any chance to springboard into the Alberta Party as a Calgary candidate & eventually seizing the leadership away from Greg Clark, MLA, Alberta Party, Calgary-Elbow who will never be Premier as long as he represents Alison Redfjord's old riding!

Naheed Is Rather Flighty Have You Noticed That Like An "Angry Bird" In Flight & Also How Violent He Gets In The Face As He Tears Up If You Disagree With Him On Anything Just Like Many Left Wing Progressives: He Looks Like He Is Gonna Take A Dump In His Pants With His Psychotic Eyeballs Popping Out Of His Head & The Biting of His Lower Lip (I Won't Tell Him Trump Is Coming To Calgary Next Week),

The School Trustee Candidates-Mr. Chubb

Rory J. Koopmans, B. Admin., #6, 14504-108 Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta T5N 1G8

October XIVth, MMXVII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

Edmonton Public Schools Ward C Trustee & Candidate Orville Chubb has really "gone to the dogs" & I approve especially as he & his gorgeous bride Trudy named their two dogs Fynnley & Rory (although I might be a little biased on the latter pooch's name). I strongly woofdorse Orville's reelection along with his canine daughters. Orville discusses combining educational efforts with government official at differing levels to make lives better for students.

"I have the ability to work with all levels of government."

An Inclusive Exclusive

Rory J. Koopmans, B. Admin., #6, 14504-108 Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta T5N 1G8

October XIIIth, MMXVII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

Mayor Don Iveson & other candidates are constantly talking about building a more "inclusive" city that is for all Edmontonians. So why don't they commit to holding at least I (1) City Council Meeting in each of the city's XII (12) wards during the next council term & thus allowing Edmontonians to see their council in action & up close? Ward 6 doesn't need any special arrangements because that is where City Hall is but the other 11 wards have City owned facilities such as recreation centres where meetings could be held in the arena. Or perhaps in a church/mosque/temple or even a community hall to make students & the their families feel truly part of the democratic process.

I wish I could take credit for this process of thought/idea but it was suggested to me by a gentleman & his husband who were attending the IIIrd Mayoral Forum with their really cute surrogate delivered little girl. A real Bob Ligertwood "sweetie" to be sure: she was so precocious when running around at the back of the room at the coffee break & I almost got run down by her that she had to just randomly tell me that she was "really pretty" & I most vociferously agreed with her! And I told her dads that & we got to talking & they gave me this idea & it would have been my question if my ticket number had called. The two gents & their girl (a very nice family I must say) told me they were Ward 10 residents & just couldn't get to City Hall very easily & would love it if "City Hall came to them."

The Federales

Rory J. Koopmans, B. Admin., Spruce Grove Tim Horton's Courtesy Wifi, Spruce Grove, Alberta

October XIIth, MMXVII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

We have the Sturgeon River-Parkland federal byelection on to replace the very lovely & bright & talented former MP, Hon. Rona Ambrose, PC, Conservative. Yes this can cause voter confusion what with the civic election on October XVIth. But it is very important for voters to vote in both as the federal writ is on October XXIIIrd with Advance Polls starting tomorrow. What a pity Rona quit but I can understand how she didn't want as the Ex-Interim Tory Leader to overshadow the new leader, the Hon. Andrew Scheer, PC, MP, Conservative, Regina-Qu-Appelle. Here in "The Grove" the feeling is the Tories will easily hold this riding.

Federal Governance,

Rory
