26 days — but whose counting?
This is what Liberal candidate Jeff Rock said last Wednesday in a telephone interview from his Red Deer office.
Rock, who is on leave from his job as minister of a church in the city, said he is having a lot of fun.
“It’s going really well,” he said. “The response has been great.”
Overall, the first time Liberal candidate said people are worried about their jobs and want to see a new direction in government.
“They are pretty worried about the economy,” he said. “I know it’s a long shot to be a Liberal candidate in Alberta, but I am cautiously optimistic.”
Rock has served as the board chair of the Central Alberta AIDS Network Society and has been a member of the City of Red Deer’s Downtown Redevelopment Plan Committee. He is the founding chair of the Red Deer Interfaith Network.
Rock holds both a Bachelor of Science and a Master’s of Divinity from McGill University in Montreal. He is an Ordained Minister in The United Church of Canada.
Rock will be in Rimbey on Oct. 2 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the Empress Theatre Emporium for coffee and conversation. He will be at the Cross Eyed Giraffe Cafe in Bentley from 3 to 4 p.m.
