There are now four candidates running for the UCP nomination in the Livingstone-Macleod riding.

Christina Lee, a lawyer by trade is looking to get into the political ring for the first time.

Lee explains why she's running. 

"Well, with my legal background and experience working in both government and private sector, I've always had interest in politics, but it was hard to find the right timing because I have young kids. And while I was working on establishing a business in High River, I came across the opportunity to run in this riding."

Lee is planning on opening up a health services business in the Charles Clark Centre and says she has a different perspective that sets her apart from other candidates.

"I plan on focusing on highlighting the everyday challenges that people in this riding face. Such as, you know access to health care, the affordability crisis, and promoting economic growth in this region. So, I thought I could bring value and make positive contributions to this community, so I've decided to join the race."

While she is not native to the riding having been born in South Korea, she and her husband moved to Alberta over a decade ago.

She grew up in Ontario where she obtained her law degree from the University of Toronto while also holding a bachelor's degree in Economics.

Her and her husband settled in Grande Prairie for nine years before moving to Calgary with their young children about a year and a half ago.

The current MLA for the Livingstone-Macleod riding is Roger Reid and he announced last fall he would not be seeking re-election.
