Welcome to our website and thank you for sharing some of your time with us.
I would like to begin my message by recognizing the outstanding slate of individuals who have let their names stand as members of our Board and Executive. I look forward to working with all of you and building momentum towards the 2019 federal election.
Since the Liberals won the last election in 2015, their record has been very concerning: increased debt and taxes, including a federal carbon tax, a lack of support for pipeline infrastructure, and a failure to address the grain transportation backlog. Liberal priorities are not Saskatchewan priorities, and they certainly are not the priorities of those who call Regina-Wascana home. What we need is a Conservative majority government in Ottawa and a Conservative MP in Regina-Wascana in 2019!
Within the next year, we will be choosing our Conservative candidate for our riding. I encourage all Conservatives in Regina-Wascana with a valid party membership to make their voices heard by voting at the nomination meeting. If you are interested in voting, but do not have an active membership, you can purchase or renew online: https://donate.conservative.ca/membership/. Whoever is chosen as our candidate, they will need our full support as we head into 2019.
Central to preparing for the next election is fundraising. We need to make sure that our nominated candidate has the financial resources they need to take on the Liberals. Although we have fundraising events throughout the year, a big part of our fundraising needs must be met through donations from individual supporters. If you would like to make a donation to the EDA, please visit: www.cpcreginawascana.com. Generous tax credits are available, and all funds donated to the EDA go directly to ensuring we can run a competitive and successful election campaign in 2019.
Undoubtedly, the next year will be exciting for both our EDA and our party. I encourage you to check out the website for updates on events and on ways to get involved at the grassroots. We are always looking for new Conservative-minded individuals to participate in our EDA, and we welcome anyone interested in lending a hand or learning more about our association to reach out – especially young adults with a keen interest in politics. As a millennial, the Regina-Wascana EDA was my first foray into federal politics; I hope that it can serve a similar role for you as it did for me.
Thank you for your time and I look forward to meeting you in the near future!
President, Regina-Wascana EDA
