Newly elected Alberta Party leader Stephen Mandel is back in Grande Prairie for the first time since his campaign. He will be speaking at a summer social event put on by the Grande Prairie and Grande Prairie-Wapiti Alberta Party Constituency Associations.
The gathering will be held at Centre 2000 Thursday from 7 to 9 p.m. with a question and answer period following Mandel’s keynote address. Tickets cost $20 as a fundraiser for the constituency associations.
Mandel was chosen by party members in February, following a three-way race spurred by the resignation of former leader Greg Clark. The former Mayor of Edmonton will also be meeting with regional municipalities, the Grande Prairie Chamber of Commerce, and Grande Prairie Regional College while in the city.
The Alberta Party currently has three sitting MLAs, including Clark and floor-crossers Karen McPherson and Rick Fraser.
