Premier Alison Redford issued the following statement on the municipal and school board elections in Alberta. “I want to congratulate all of the candidates who ran for public office in today’s municipal and school board elections.

“To the successful candidates, I wish all of you the best in your upcoming term. Whether you are a newly elected official or a veteran returning to a post, I look forward to working with all of you as we continue to build Alberta for all four million Albertans – and the next million who will arrive in the next decade – by investing in families and communities, living within our means and opening new markets.

“To all the candidates who took the courageous step of putting their names on a ballot, I want to thank you, your families, your campaign teams and volunteers for your willingness to serve the public and take part in the democratic process. I know you will all continue to make a difference in your communities and make Alberta an even better place to live, work and raise a family.”
