Nolan Dyck looking forward to bringing business background to legislature

Nolan Dyck says he is incredibly humbled and honoured the people of Grande Prairie were willing to go and cast their vote for him. The United Conservative Party candidate is projected to win the Grande Prairie riding with 62.3 per cent of the vote with 15 out of 19 polls reporting.

“It’s a lot of hard work coming down the pipe. I look forward to the opportunity to represent Grande Prairie while here in the legislature,” Dyck says.

He explains he hopes to use his background in business and as an entrepreneur as he potentially represents the residents of Grande Prairie over the next four years.

“It is about people, every business is about people, so I hope to listen and also represent the people of Grande Prairie well. Those are huge opportunities and I look forward to sharing those as the years go on here.”

Throughout his campaign, Dyck says one of the biggest things he heard from residents is that they want to see time and money put into improving health care.

“They want to keep seeing the strong mandate of hiring more nurses and hiring more doctors, that is exactly where we need to go,” Dyck says. “I look forward to seeing those things continue to expand and we have seen them expand which is fantastic, and continuing to stand strong for energy. We hear in Grande Prairie we have many people working in the energy sector, and I am proud of our energy sector.”

With 15 out of 19 polls reporting, NDP candidate Kevin McLean received 32.9 per cent of the vote, with Independence Party of Alberta candidate David Braun receiving 2.1 per cent, Alberta Party candidate Preston Mildenberger receiving 1.6 per cent, and Green Party candidate Shane Diederich receiving 1.1 per cent.

Dyck received the UCP nomination for the Grande Prairie riding back in April after Tracy Allard announced she would not be seeking re-election.
