Bringing a strong united voice for rural Alberta to the table is important to Tammy Cote, who has announced her decision to throw her hat into the political ring.

Cote, who is an active member of the Rocky Mountain House community and has 30 years’ experience at ATB Financial, says she has insight into what is really important to the people in the constituency of Rimbey-Rocky Mountain House-Sundre.

Since making her intention to run public, Cote has met with several groups and individuals in the constituency, she said.

“People have different priorities and expectations,” she said. “Every community has their key issues and concerns.”

The time spent visiting with people in the constituency has affirmed her belief that west central Alberta is built on strong communities where people can make a good living, run successful businesses and support each other.

“As a pursuer of the PC nomination, I’ve made three promises to myself and those whom I may represent,” she said. “One — I will determine priorities and make decisions that enhance our province, our constituency and our future. Two — I will maintain a commitment to fiscal responsibility, community and family values, and rural principles. Three — I will act with integrity. Action with integrity is my mandate.”

Cote was born and raised in Rocky Mountain House and is active in the Chamber of Commerce and the health centre fundraising committee. She has extensive training in business analysis and personal finances.

“I have worked with people from all walks of life and businesses from all different industries. This experience lends insight to what is really important to the people of this constituency,” she said.

For the last three years Cote has spearheaded the publication of a constituency newsletter for the PCs and has held a membership in the party for many years.
