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.

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.”
