Bill DeJong Endorsement

Feb 04, 2019

I would like to tell you about my friend and colleague, Doug Schweitzer.

As someone who has been active in provincial and federal politics since my 20’s, I have had the honour of working with numerous political candidates and can honestly say, Doug is one of the very best.

I also have the privilege of working with Doug at Dentons, the world’s largest global law firm and as a colleague, I have seen Doug’s great qualities first hand. He is a person of integrity, kindness and inclusiveness, with a smart, strategic mind.

Not only is Doug a natural leader, he is also an exceptional team and consensus builder who brings passion and enthusiasm to everything he does. In Doug’s role as a restructuring lawyer, he deals with crises and develops a path forward that makes good business sense. As a fiscal conservative and UCP candidate, Doug will bring his experience, logic and compassion while helping rebuild Alberta to its former great stature.

As Doug is the father of two young girls, I admire his commitment to ensuring their future, and that of all Albertans, is filled with countless opportunities, economic stability and strong Provincial leadership.

Residents of Calgary-Elbow and the United Conservative Party will benefit tremendously from electing Doug to the Alberta legislature. In my opinion, he represents the future of our Party and our Province, and for that reason, Doug Schweitzer has my unwavering support.
