Drew Barnes Launches Wildrose Leadership Bid

MEDICINE HAT, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Feb. 26, 2015) - Drew Barnes announced today he is running for leader of the Wildrose Party of Alberta.

"Alberta is one of the most exciting, dynamic and diverse provinces in Canada," said Barnes. "I am running for leader of the Wildrose Party in order to give Albertans a strong, conservative voice in provincial politics."

Barnes is currently the sitting member of the Legislative Assembly for Cypress-Medicine Hat. He was first elected in 2012.

"I have a vision for the Wildrose Party and for our province," said Barnes. "It is a vision I know many of us share: Alberta, strong and free, where hard work and determination are rewarded with new hope and new opportunity."

Barnes currently serves as the Wildrose Party's Caucus Whip and Finance Critic for the Official Opposition.

"We have the most expensive government in Canada," said Barnes. "As the Prentice Government continues down a path of waste and entitlement, and towards a premature and unnecessary election, I firmly believe our principles are worth fighting for."

Drew Barnes was born in Saskatchewan in 1961 and moved to Medicine Hat with his parents in 1974. He went on to complete a Bachelor of Commerce degree in 1983 from the University of Alberta and immediately thereafter embarked upon his award winning career in real estate.

"I believe in supporting families and working together to build a strong neighborhood, community, region and province."

Drew is also an entrepreneur and businessman. He owns a number of businesses in Medicine Hat which include a construction company, storage facility, and a property management company. Drew also owns commercial and residential property all over Southern Alberta and Southwestern Saskatchewan, and has irrigation and ranch land raising commercial beef and rodeo stock.
