Broere puts support behind Nixon as Wildrose MLA candidate

Pieter Broere’s decision to run as MLA for the Wildrose Party for the Rimbey-Rocky Mountain House-Sundre riding got shut down

Pieter Broere’s decision to run as MLA for the Wildrose Party for the Rimbey-Rocky Mountain House-Sundre riding got shut down abruptly when he received notification from the Party he was disqualified.

Broere, who has been a Party member for four months, was told he needed to be a member for six months in order to let his name stand as a candidate.

The Party’s ruling has put Broere out of the running, but he is pleased to put his support behind Jason Nixon.

“He is very capable and he is legal to run within the Party. When I talked to Jason I realized we were on the same page. I ask all my supporters to back him.”

Broere said he was overwhelmed by the support he received during his short-lived, but enthusiastic campaign.

“The support I received was beyond my expectations, but I don’t really think it was me. The people of Rimbey want to see change.”

He said he is grateful for all the support he has received and will continue to stand behind the Party and back Nixon, whom he sees as being a positive choice as an MLA.

“An MLA needs to listen to and encourage the people in his constituency,” he said.
