Kevin McLean named NDP candidate in Grande Prairie

Former Grande Prairie city councillor Kevin McLean will be the Alberta NDP candidate for the Grande Prairie riding in the upcoming provincial election. McLean explains that since he moved to the area in 1991 he has been heavily involved in what he calls “building up the community.”

“This is my home, and I know that with my experience and armed with the well thought out and effective plans the Alberta NDP have for the province, Grande Prairie will thrive. People here are very worried about healthcare, and many don’t have a family doctor. The Alberta NDP have a plan to bring primary care to more Albertans and keep medical professionals as integral parts of our community.”

McLean was a Grande Prairie city councillor for two terms, serving from 2010 to 2017. He previously ran twice as the Alberta Liberal Party nominee in the Grande Prairie – Smoky riding, in 2012 and 2015, and was also the St. Albert nominee in 2019. Last year McLean ran in the city’s byelection.

McLean announced he was seeking the nomination back at the beginning of April and his party switch comes with the endorsement of the NDP leader Rachel Notley. So far, he will be up against United Conservative Party candidate Nolan Dyck.
