Leah Murray Endorses Doug Schweitzer

Feb 04, 2019

I am supporting Doug Schweitzer for the UCP nomination in Calgary-Elbow and I would like to tell you why.

As the saying goes, Doug is the real deal.  When we first met, Doug was campaign manager on a major provincial leadership race. His work ethic, integrity, commitment, and the ability to build a dedicated team of volunteers – of which I was one, was impressive.

Doug and I remained friends, and when he called me in March of this year to share that he was running for the UCP nomination in Calgary-Elbow, my home riding, I was thrilled.

The United Conservative Party is still in its infancy and needs people like Doug to help shape the party and its policies – ones that will matter to citizens of Calgary-Elbow.

Here are a few of the reasons why I am supporting Doug:  

Doug and his wife, Jen, are parents of two young daughters. Just like families in Calgary-Elbow and across Alberta, they want to ensure that all children can reach their full potential in Alberta.

Doug cares about our community and believes in making it a safer and healthier place to live. For many years, he was active on the board of the Calgary Drug Treatment Court to help recovering drug addicts.  

He will advocate strongly for flood mitigation. The effects of the flood were felt both within our community and beyond. Doug is actively working with Flood Free Calgary and other stakeholder groups to promote flood mitigation efforts like the Springbank Dam.  

Doug is a Partner with the global law firm, Dentons, and specializes in corporate restructurings. He’s seen how the uncompetitive policies of the current government have failed Albertans and businesses of all sizes but he knows how to turn things around. Doug will fight for tax relief, competitive regulations and balanced budgets.

He will also work closely with UCP leader, Jason Kenney to stand up against Federal policies that negatively impact Alberta.


Your voice and vote matter, so please join me and support Doug as our UCP candidate for Calgary-Elbow.  Sincerely,

Leah Murray
