A local councillor is aiming for a provincial nomination.
Gibbons second term councillor Amber Harris is now a candidate for the United Conservative Party's (UCP) nomination in the Morinville - St.Albert constituency.
"It took me a fair amount of time to make this decision. I was asked to consider running late in 2017 and decided to throw my name in the hat. I think it's good timing, we need some new blood in the conservatives in Alberta," said Harris. "I'm determined to make this a better place to live and this is how I think I can do it."
Harris has lived in Sturgeon County for over 30 years and attended school in Namao.
Her main focus of improvement for the area will be the economy, but she has a close second.
"If we have a strong working class, a lot of the issues will iron themselves out," added Harris. "The rural crime issue needs to be addressed. It's not the RCMP's fault, they have a lot of area to cover with perhaps not enough staff."
If elected, Harris would have to step down from her position with the Town of Gibbons.
Currently, three others have submitted to be nominated for the Morinville - St.Albert UCP region: Donald Rigney, Dale Nally and Trina Jones.
The election will be in 2019.
