United Conservative Leader Jason Kenney has issued a statement following the nomination of Karri Flatla as the party’s candidate in Lethbridge-West for the 2019 provincial election:
“Today, more than 830 United Conservative members in Lethbridge-West cast ballots for their preferred candidate for the next election from amongst three great contestants.
“I would like to congratulate Karri Flatla on winning this hotly contested race.
“Karri is an experienced small business owner who understands the issues most important to the people in Lethbridge-West. She runs a successful real estate sales practice in Lethbridge and holds a Bachelor of Management degree. Throughout her career as a realtor, she has become a keen negotiator, working hard to get the best deal for those she works with. Her experience will be tremendously valuable to the United Conservative team as we seek to defeat the NDP, reignite the Alberta economy and get our province back on track. I am pleased to welcome Karri as the United Conservative candidate in Lethbridge-West.
“I would also like to thank Rick Dempsey, George Rigaux, and their teams for their participation in the democratic process and dedication to our movement.”
