In Good Humour

Local Man to Run for Wildrose
Dave Nelson is one of four candidates who wants to represent this riding for the Battle River-Wainwright provincial constituency.
Nelson, who will soon be 47 years old told The News that he has been involved with the Wildrose Alliance Party since 2009 and is “frustrated” with the Conservative party in power, particularly with Bills 24, 36, 16 and 50 which concern farm owners. He says the Wildrose is a “grass roots” party.
The Metiskow man has not run for provincial office before.
Paid up members of the party as of October 21 can vote through a mail-in ballot sent out on October 25 with results counted on November 25. Nelson, who is a school trustee for Buffalo Trail Public Schools and a fourth generation farmer living north of Metiskow is “very excited about Wildrose and Danielle Smith” . . . and Nelson is interested in fighting for property rights “. . . it’s a big issue for me.”
