Edmonton – Seven members of the PC Party of Alberta have put their names forward for consideration for the list of Senate nominees to be submitted to the Prime Minister.
At the close of nominations January 9 at 4 pm, seven PC Albertans had met the criteria allowing them to move to the next stage of the selection process. Their names will now appear on a selection ballot February 10-11 subject to a vote of eligible PC AA members, including Constituency Association Presidents from Alberta’s 87 constituencies, and all nominated PC candidates for MLA.
The top finishers in this process will represent PC Alberta in the province’s Senator Selection election, which is to run concurrent with the province’s next general election, which is expected in 2012.
The Government of Alberta has committed to submit a list of “elected” nominees to the Prime Minister for him to select Alberta Senators from.
“I want to thank each of these individuals for coming forward,” said Bill Smith, President of the Progressive Conservative Association of Alberta.
“This is another example of how engaged Albertans are in politics – how so many people want to make a difference to their communities, and are continuing to choose Alberta’s Progressive Conservative party as their political home.”
The seven candidates are:
- Doug Black
- Doug Fee
- Greg Krischke
- Jack Redekop
- Mike Shaikh
- Sam Shaw
- Scott Tannas
All PC Senate candidates were required to submit a list of 250 PCAA members showing support from across Alberta with, at least 50 signatures from each of the province’s five regions:
A $4,000 non-refundable fee was payable at nomination filing, and candidates are required to publicly disclose donors over $375.00.
