The Al­berta Party West Yel­low­head Con­stituency is pleased to an­nounce that Kristie Go­muwka will be the Al­berta Party Can­di­date for West Yel­low­head in the up­com­ing provin­cial elec­tion.

Kristie is a fourth gen­er­a­tion res­i­dent of West Yel­low­head liv­ing in both Ed­son and White­court. Grow­ing up in the area Kristie un­der­stands the im­por­tance of the nat­u­ral re­sources in­dus­try in West Yel­low­head.

“West Yel­low­head is the back bone to Al­berta’s nat­u­ral re­source in­dus­try and the gate­way to the nat­u­ral beauty of the Rocky Moun­tains. We are lead­ers on how to cham­pion re­source devel­op­ment while be­ing ac­tive en­vi­ron­men­tal stew­ards for fu­ture gen­er­a­tions. I want the op­por­tu­nity to ad­vo­cate to pro­tect our way of life.”

Kristie finds pol­i­tics in Al­berta be­com­ing more and more di­vi­sive, and wants to bring a com­mon sense per­spec­tive to the is­sues we face as Al­ber­tans.

“The de­ci­sions we make to­day can have long-last­ing con­se­quences. It is im­por­tant that we find the bal­ance be­tween be­ing fi­nan­cially pru­dent and so­cially re­spon­si­ble. Many Al­berta fam­i­lies are strug­gling and we need com­mon sense so­lu­tions and it all starts with hav­ing a strong econ­omy. In ad­di­tion, a vast ma­jor­ity of Al­ber­tans find them­selves as be­ing so­cially pro­gres­sive, some­thing the Al­berta Party be­lieves is very im­por­tant.”

West Yel­low­head is one of the largest and eco­nom­i­cally di­verse con­stituen­cies in the prov­ince. elected, Kristie would fo­cus on:

Re­duc­ing ru­ral crime. Job and eco­nomic growth.

· Pro­tec­tion of nat­u­ral re­source in­dus­try.

· En­sur­ing the ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties have a voice.

· In­creased fo­cus on tourism for the area.

Kristie cur­rently re­sides in Ed­son with her hus­band, Kevin, and her daugh­ter, Keira, who just en­tered grade 9. Kristie has been an avid vol­un­teer or­ga­niz­ing nu­mer­ous events in the com­mu­nity, and cur­rently works as a so­cial worker since 1993. She was also named Ci­ti­zen of the Year in 2013 by the Ed­son & District Cham­ber of Com­merce.
