Ian has strong ties within his Riding and understands its diversities; from farming to business, schools to health care, property rights to renewable resources and the importance of balance in all these issues. He has been a huge supporter and contributor for his local community and was elected to Vulcan County Council at the age of 19, at that same time he took over the family farm. His understanding of grass roots and extensive municipal governance knowledge will aid him in his political future.
Ian won his nomination in 2010 and is looking forward to being part of the change that Alberta needs. Little Bow will be represented in Edmonton instead of Edmonton being represented to Little Bow.
