EDMONTON, AB (March 23, 2019): United Conservative Leader Jason Kenney has issued a statement following the nomination of Sanjay Patel as the Party’s candidate in Edmonton-Ellerslie for the 2019 provincial election.
“Today, more than 1300 United Conservative members in Edmonton Ellerslie voted to choose their candidate for the election from amongst four great contestants.
“I would like to congratulate Sanjay Patel on his nomination win tonight in Edmonton-Ellerslie.
"Like many Albertans, Sanjay Patel came to Canada seeking opportunity. Sanjay received a Bachelor of Science degree in India, and since coming to Alberta, he has worked in the construction industry. Sanjay will be a huge asset to the United Conservative team as we work to present Albertans with a common-sense alternative to the NDP. I am pleased to welcome Sanjay as the United Conservative candidate in Edmonton-Ellerslie.
“I would also like to thank Rajesh Arora, Sherry Adams, Tony Bislimi, and their teams for their participation in the democratic process and dedication to our movement.”
