Alberta NDP candidate Shaun Fluker has secured the nomination in the Airdrie-Cochrane riding and isn't wasting any time getting ready for the election in May 2023. 

Fluker beat out Steve Durrell, who ran for the NDP in the last election, in a recent vote. 

"I'm thankful to all the members here in Airdrie-Cochrane with the Alberta NDP that selected me as their candidate for the next provincial election and absolutely want to thank Steve for a rigorous campaign," says Fluker. "I think that serves us all well when we have active dialogue in the democratic process, so I'm happy to be here." 

He feels that campaigning for a nomination can play a vital role in preparing for an election. 

"For starters, I think one of the most important things is it gets both myself and Steve talking to folks, knocking on doors, and in doing so, we hear directly from the people here and the electors about what matters to them and what they want to see in their government. It's a great kickstart to my campaign." 

He's presently putting together a campaign team, and a nomination event will be conducted in the future. 

"Folks can come out, listen to me, and meet me personally. I'm going to start knocking on doors and solidify all the things that I've heard from folks in Airdrie and Cochrane and solidify my positions on all those issues." 

He mentioned health care, EMS, education, energy, and parks, as just some of the issues that need to be taken care of.
