MLA Doug Elniski announces he is not seeking re-election.

 (Media Release January 19th, 2012)



The greatest honour of my life was to be elected by my neighbours to serve as the MLA for the Edmonton-Calder constituency. 


Since March 2008, I have attempted to honestly and diligently represent the issues of my constituents and to work to improve their quality of life.  In doing so, I was enriched by the wonderful relationships that developed for which I will always be grateful.


I am especially proud to have helped my friend and colleague, the Honourable Alison Redford become Alberta's first woman Premier.  Her pragmatic approach to governance is exactly what we need in a province as prosperous as Alberta.  Her stewardship will ensure that equity exists between service to Albertans and fiscal responsibility.


We have the resources most in demand in the world; food, fuel and fibre.    Alberta is the economic engine of Canada and Canada, in turn, is the safest most robust economy in the world.


After considerable internal debate, I have decided I will not be seeking re-election in 2012 to pursue other opportunities.


Thank you to all my friends, supporters and constituents for the opportunity to serve you as the MLA for Edmonton-Calder. I wish you all success in whatever endeavours you pursue and never forget... "It’s all in Calder".


God bless,


Doug Elniski
