ANNOUNCEMENT – Representing the Alberta Party

Krystal Kromm enters MLA race in Red Deer North

  • Mar. 11, 2015 2:52 p.m.

Krystal Kromm has launched her campaign for MLA in Red Deer North as an Alberta Party candidate.

“I’m inspired by the vision of the Alberta Party and instead of continuing to be disenfranchised with how we are represented in the legislature, I’m choosing to lead,” she said, during a press conference in Red Deer on Saturday.

Kromm, who has lived in Red Deer for 12 years, is the vice president of the Downtown Business Association. She is also a citizen representative on the Community Housing Advisory Board and also volunteers within the City and she is a co-founder of The Charity Dessert Gala which has raised more than $10,000 in the last three years for the pediatric unit at the Red Deer Hospital.

“I love Red Deer because it is a great place to live and it has great people. It is a caring community. Through my experience as a volunteer, as a local businesswoman and as a member of various boards, I have seen the compassion that people in Red Deer have for their community. Again and again they give their time, they give their money, they give their talents because that is the right thing to do. The Alberta Party is like that to – they want to do the right things for the right reasons.”

She added Alberta is full of opportunity and potential.

“We require strong visionary leadership so that our province will continue to prosper. I am dedicated to finding solutions that are important in my community and I pledge to work for Albertans and members of our community to find common ground,” said Kromm. “My goal is to bring together the best ideas from around the table and find solutions that will work for all Albertans.”

Kromm added her campaign priorities include education, health and seniors.

“An investment in our teachers is an investment in our children. We need hospitals where you don’t have to wait for hours in the emergency room to get access to quality healthcare. I am committed to improving that access to good quality healthcare for all people,” she said. “We all get old – we need to represent our grandparents the same way that we represent our children. I’m dedicated to fulfilling the commitment out province has to our seniors.”

She added she will not blame Albertans for the province’s current economic situation.

“I do not blame families, I do not blame teachers or nurses, I do not blame seniors and I do not blame Red Deer North,” she said. “We will not get out of this situation by playing a blame game. We need to work together to find common ground. The vision of the Alberta Party will bring new energy to our province and I will bring new energy to Red Deer North.”
