The UCP has confirmed their candidate for the Strathcona-Sherwood Park constituency.
Nate Glubish has been acclaimed as the United Conservative Party (UCP) candidate for the upcoming election in 2019.
The 36-year-old from Sherwood Park has helped with Garnett Genuis’ 2015 Federal Election Campaign, campaigned extensively for unity between the Wildrose Party and Progressive Conservative Party in 2017 and worked on Jason Kenney’s leadership campaign.
"I was obviously very thrilled with the result. It's something I've worked very hard at and has been a long process," said Glubish. "The exciting part now is being able to move forward with planning for the general election campaign. We've got a lot of time to get organized and build on the momentum we are seeing in the riding."
In a statement released by the UCP, Kenney had high praise for the newcomer. "Nate has spent his career helping Alberta-based technology companies secure the investment they need to prosper and has been involved in successfully bringing more than $190 million in investment to our province. This experience, along with his drive to help Alberta entrepreneurs succeed, will serve our province and our caucus well."
Glubish said he's heard overwhelming concerns on the financial position that the province is in.
"Under the current budget, Alberta will reach $96 billion in debt by 2023. We cannot afford to continue on this path."
Glubish has a Bachelor of Commerce degree, majoring in Finance from the University of Saskatchewan, he also served as UCP president for the Strathcona-Sherwood Park constituency from October 2017 to April 2018.
