YEG City Councilor Byelection Candidate, Edmonton, Alberta
February IInd, MMXVI
Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder
Stepping out of Balzac Billy's shadow & into the light this Grounghog Day is your caucus colleague, The Hon. Rachel Notley, B. A., LL. B., MLA, Premier & Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs & Intergovernmental Relations & President of the Executive Council, New Democratic, Edmonton-Strathcona who has added VI new cabinet ministers & put in a Deputy Premier for the first time by giving the Hon. Sarah Hoffman, B. Ed., MLA, Deputy Premier & Minister of Health, New Democratic, Edmonton-Glenora that title. Thus downgrading on paper the Hon. Brian Brian, Mason, MLA, Minister of Infrastructure & Minister of Transportation & Leader of the Government in the House, New Democratic, Edmonton-Highlands-Norwood to IIIrd place in the cabinet order of preference list. The new ministers whom I congratulate most sincerely are:
I. The Hon. Richard Feehan, B. A., B. S. W., M. S. W,, MLA, Minister of Indigenous Relations, New Democratic, Edmonton-Rutherford.
II. The Hon. Christina Gray, B. A., MLA, Minister of Labour & Minister Responsible for Democratic Renewal, New Democratic, Edmonton-Millwoods.
III. The Hon. Stephanie Mclean, B. A., J. D., MLA, Minister of Service Alberta & Minister of Status of Women, New Democratic, Calgary-Varsity.
IV. The Hon. Ricardo Miranda, B. A., MLA, Minister of Culture & Tourism, New Democratic, Calgary-Cross.
V. The Hon. Marlin Schmidt, B. Sc., M. Sc., MLA, Minister of Advanced Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Goldbar.
VI. The Hon. Brandy Payne, B. Journ., MLA, Associate Minister of Health, New Democratic, Calgary-Acadia.
I congratulate all of the new ministers & I or anyone of my XXX remaining opponents think we can have a productive municipal/provincial government working relationship no matter which one of us is elected. I also love the fact that the MLA for Edmonton-Millwoods & I believe a tiny bit of the MLA for Edmonton-Goldbar are in cabinet so they can extra clout in addressing issues with Rachel in the Cabinet Room or in meetings with her at The Office of the Premier, Room #307 Legislature Bvilding, 10800-97 Avenue, Edmonton, Alberta T5K 2B6.
Its also great that we are padding the salaries of the II pregnant cabinet ministers with new extra wages to cover off the fact that MLAs don't receive maternal benefits & this will cover their time off with leaves so they can truly enjoy their families! Gender & biological respect by Rachel, frankly I love it!
