Kurek wins CPC nomination in Battle River-Crowfoot
Damien Kurek has been selected by members of the CPC Battle River-Crowfoot constituency to be its candidate in the next federal election.
After a week of meetings throughout the constituency, speeches, forums, and polling, the final vote was held July 17 in Camrose. Kurek defeated Jefferson McClung and Jeff Watson for the nomination.
“It has been an amazing end to what has been an amazing campaign,” Kurek told the Mail.
He said following the vote, another candidate made a motion to make the result unanimous and it was received by the membership.
“We are operating fully in unity going forward.”
Kurek announced he was running for the nomination on April 23. Kurek grew up in Consort and has worked for several years for MP Kevin Sorenson. He is grateful for the nomination.
“It is so humbling to be granted the honour to represent the Conservative Party. We have worked really hard to ensure we grew membership and connected with as many people as possible talking about common sense conservative values,” he said. He is looking forward to the future.
“The win was absolutely incredible. It shows that message and that respect we are needing to bring back to this country is something that resonated with people. I look forward to being able to join a team of amazing Conservative Party candidates across the country to fight really hard to get this country back on track,” said Kurek.
He knows he has big shoes to fill succeeding MP Kevin Sorenson.
“Kevin has been a friend and mentor for a long time. He demonstrated that you can be a strong leader and effectively represent your constituents.”
I look forward to working hard and trying to follow in those footsteps and make sure we can have that kind of representation going forward.”
