Larry Gibson is seeking the nomination to become the UCP candidate in the Grande Prairie riding in the upcoming provincial election.
Gibson is an energy and utilities consultant and former chair of the Grande Prairie and District Chamber of Commerce. Gibson says the city has given him so much and he would like to give back.
“I know the area has so much to offer, people in this area are so great, so committed to making the area the best it should be and I just want to be a part of that I want to get out there and be a representative that works with them.”
Gibson says he has had aspirations to represent the constituency of Grande Prairie in the past but the timing has never been right. He says this time in his life is the best and he is ready for the challenge.
“I just want to be involved, I’m excited the opportunity to possibly represent constituents here in Grande Prairie, and really for that matter, the whole area, to make the area the best it can be.”
He joins other nominees Gladys Blackmore, Nolan Dyck, and Tayyab Parvez in vying for the seat left vacant by outgoing Grande Prairie MLA Tracy Allard, who announced she will not be running for reelection earlier this year.
People in the constituency of Grande Prairie who hold membership can vote to nominate one candidate on April 3rd.
