A former Progressive Conservative has a new challenge ahead.
Earlier this month, Susan Timanson was acclaimed as the Alberta Party's candidate for the Sherwood Park constituency.
Timanson comes into the position as a former Edmonton vice president for the Progressive Conservative Party and as a long-time constituency president and organizer.
"When the PC Party folded in 2017, I found myself without a political home for the first time in many years. I discovered the Alberta Party and realized that it was what I was looking for."
A graduate of Salisbury Composite High School, Timanson was born in Scotland before settling in Sherwood Park in 1972.
"I'd like to bring common sense where it's not very common and that's sometimes politics," she added. "I'm a very good listener, I understand a lot of the issues that are there and I'm really open to hearing what people feel are their issues and be able to bring them forward."
The date for the next provincial election has not yet been set, however under Alberta provincial law, it must happen between March 1 and May 31, 2019.
