Alberta’s 2019 provincial election
is now complete. RMA would like to congratulate the United Conservative Party
and Premier-designate Jason Kenney on their majority government.
RMA looks forward to the opportunity to work with a new government and a new Cabinet to support strong, vibrant rural communities. A new cohort of ministers and MLAs will provide a great opportunity to share information about what matters to Alberta’s rural municipalities, and what it takes to ensure that rural communities are sustainable in the future. This includes advocating for community services, sustainable municipal funding, and supporting the industries that power Alberta’s economy.
RMA will also continue our work with all MLAs and all political parties to inform and advocate on topics important to rural Albertans. RMA appreciates the efforts of the Alberta NDP over the past four years, and in particular the work of Municipal Affairs Minister Shaye Anderson in supporting municipalities of all types.
RMA will be working hard in the coming weeks to educate new and returning MLAs on the importance of rural Alberta and the role of RMA in building a strong province. With the election over, our work is just beginning, and our goal continues to be to make sure provincial decision-makers understand that rural Alberta is Where it All Starts
