Citizens’ concerns must precede partisan politics

There is a fundamental problem with provincial politics and politicians

Dear Editor:

There is a fundamental problem with provincial politics and politicians, in my opinion, from my perspective of being a voter and a citizen of the Province of Alberta. I am willing as a person to consider a variety of opinions that are routinely expressed via the media from our politicians, a.k.a., government representatives. The problem is this, no matter what a politician in the governing party says or does, it is always perceived by a member of their opposing political party as being the wrong thing to do. If they cannot say it is wrong, then they say it is too little too late, or that it was their idea.

The elected official for our area is a member of the official opposition. Through the democratic process, he has been chosen to be my representative and he votes on my behalf. I would like to be sure that the best interests of our province and citizens come before partisan politics.

Marilyn Kenzler,
