President's Message

Hello Edmonton Centre Conservatives,

Our focus as Conservatives in Edmonton Centre continues to be on growing our membership, engaging with our existing members, standing up for our community, and making sure that our MP, James Cumming, is re-elected whenever the next federal election comes.

Whether you’re a life-long member or new to the party, we’re excited that you’re part of the team here.

As the new President of our local organization, I want to thank you for your support for our party and encourage you to introduce yourself and get involved however you can. Thank you to all of our local members that have worked tirelessly for our conservative movement and will continue to do so as we ensure James is ready for the next election. We have a great team but are always looking for others to get involved so please reach out.

If you and I haven’t met yet, I’ve been a proud resident of Edmonton Centre since I moved to the city over a decade ago and I look forward to connecting with you virtually or in-person.

In the meantime, we will keep you updated on what’s happening in the riding, what James is up to in Edmonton and Ottawa, and how our party continues to put you and your family first.

We have a lot to be proud of as a party, especially as a the local level here. But we cannot take any of that for granted. We need to continue to focus on getting our residents back to work and holding our government accountable to all citizens. Last year, the Trudeau Liberals fired everything they had at trying to hold Edmonton Centre – and we know they’ll try to take it back next time.

These are unusual times, and it’s more important than ever than we have someone like James to represent the concerns of Edmonton Centre in Ottawa – instead of just representing Ottawa in Edmonton Centre.

Our newly elected leader, Erin O’Toole is off to a strong start and has made a significant commitment to ensure that Western Canada is heard. This is more important than ever with a Trudeau Liberal government in Ottawa that is increasingly out-of-touch with the realities facing our city and our province.

Together, we’ll ensure continued success in Edmonton Centre. Thank you for all that you do for our party and our community.
