A former People's Party of Canada candidate announced she's seeking the UCP nomination in Livingstone-Macleod.
Nadine Wellwood announced yesterday (Oct. 24) she'll soon be submitting her nomination papers for the riding currently represented by Roger Reid.
In a Twitter video, she spoke of her support for Danielle Smith UCP, having attended their AGM over the weekend.
"There is a tremendous amount of support down there for Danielle and for her mandate. You know, civil liberties, making life more affordable for Albertans, bringing the priorities back to the grassroots, making sure representation to a local level, making sure people have a voice, and that voice is heard."
Happy to announce I am submitting my nomination papers to the UCP for MLA Livingstone-McLeod. I look forward to meeting with the local election committee this week as they work through the nomination process. pic.twitter.com/5h0XpkLelM— Nadine Wellwood (@NadineWellwood) October 23, 2022
Wellwood previously ran in Banff-Airdrie as a People's Party of Canada candidate in the last two federal elections, and also ran for a senate seat last year.
Until recently, there was some uncertainty as to whether or not Roger Reid would run for re-election in the riding, given that it's Danielle Smith's home riding.
With confirmation that Smith will be running in Brooks-Medicine Hat, Reid confirmed he will indeed be seeking re-election.
Last week, Kevin Van Tighem announced his intent to run for the NDP in the same riding.
