Dear neighbours, friends, and fellow Edmonton-Ellerlsie Constituency residents:

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to my campaign website for the United Conservative Party nomination contest in Edmonton-Ellerslie.  With your support, I believe I can win this nomination contest and together I know for sure we can also win the upcoming provincial election. I am willing and ready to bring my many years of international development experience and academic credentials as well as my commitment to public service to our community’s service.

I first came to Edmonton, Alberta on Christmas Day of 2001. What a fateful day would that become! I was only 18 then and was about to start my university studies in the US. During that time, I fell in love with a beautiful girl living here -- that girl now is the mother of our three Edmonton-born kids, and my better half. 

Canada, and more so, Alberta has been my new home since 2001. I love this country and its people. Albertans exemplify the hardworking people who cherish family values, believe in responsibility and accountability. In my professional career, I have spent many years working in the field of international development and with many international organizations overseas, and I have come to value more than many others what Alberta has to offer!  

Alberta is rich – not only in natural resources and beauties, diversity of cultures and people – but also in its ambitions to become all it can. As Albertans, we are blessed to have such opportunities. At the same time, we have the obligation and responsibility to act and to stand up for the Alberta we deserve and love.

Now is the time. You are the Albertan I believe in. So, let’s stand up for Alberta!

Please purchase a UCP Membership in support of my nomination.  Together we will make sure Alberta becomes the home we all love her to be – for us and for our children!

Thank you and God bless you,

Tony Bislimi
