Reader disillusioned with Wildrose after AGM

Recently there has been much misinformation regarding the Rimbey, Rocky Mountain House, Sundre Constituency Association

Dear Editor,

Recently there has been much misinformation regarding the Rimbey, Rocky Mountain House, Sundre Constituency Association of the Wildrose Party and the infamous AGM held in Rocky Mountain House on October 15. So far all that has been expressed by the Wildrose Party executive has contradicted what actually transpired.

Much has changed since I first saw Danielle Smith on television. This first impression sold me on the grass roots concept with its higher values and moral principles. No longer is this the case and all I feel is a grievous void. The AGM in Rocky and its events made me realize that the grass roots no longer exists. How is it possible that upon arrival to the AGM we realized that many names that were to be nominated were surprisingly absent from the ballot! How is it also possible that having a huge majority of members voting to continue with the meeting was overruled by the chairman; by leaving and taking his small group of supporters with him. When asked by one of our members if he realized that he was resigning his possession as chairman by leaving, he replied “yes I do” and left anyhow.

After forming a new board and continuing with the meeting, following all letters of the Wildrose constitution. After presenting it to the Wildrose executive committee not one of us was contacted to get our side of what really happened at that meeting October 15. In my mind this does not express democracy. This is not what I signed up for.

I am extremely disillusioned and very disappointed. No longer do I believe this party as a viable alternative to anything.
