New MLA Nate Horner settling into new role

April 16th election saw high voter turn-out across the province

Given a resounding mandate with 76.8 per cent of the vote, Drumheller-Stettler’s new MLA, Nate Horner, is excited to begin representing the area.

“This was a historic election in Alberta, with the highest voter turnout since the Great Depression era,” said Horner, “I am very grateful to all of my volunteers, donors, and ultimately to the voters who put their faith in me and in the plan the UCP has for our province.

“Premier-designate Jason Kenney plans to put MLAs to work right away with a spring/summer session to begin in May to start working towards positive change for Albertans – to make our province the best place to live, work, start a business and raise a family,” said Horner.

He is headed to Edmonton for orientation and to be sworn in, but said, “In the coming weeks I look forward to finalizing office and staff plans here in the riding.

“Once we have those in place we will be sharing all of our contact information so that constituents can easily reach out to me. I look forward to building on relationships across the constituency, and representing the people of Drumheller-Stettler.”
