Miller would work to make community better
Wildrose Alliance candidate Trevor Miller is committed to working for the betterment of everyone in the riding of Wetaskiwin-Camrose.
"I have enjoyed getting involved and helping people address their issues as a member of Camrose County council," said Miller, "and I am sure I would enjoy doing the same as the area's MLA.
"I would be very happy to represent Wetaskiwin-Camrose in the legislature.
Miller chose to run for the Wildrose last summer after being impressed with the Party's stance on personal freedoms, free enterprise and what he sees as too much government.
"The Party really spoke to my own personal values. I learned that as an MLA I would be able to freely represent the people who live and work in the constituency."
Miller has heard many concerns in his door to door campaign about the high cost of health care.
"The main message I am getting from people is that the health care system is too cumbersome and that the waiting times are longer than they have ever been before," he said. "I've been told that we need to decentralize the health care super board and decentralize decision making, so that patients have more choice, and more decisions could be made at the local level."
He's also getting the message that there needs to be more attention paid to education.
"I have been receiving positive feedback about the Wildrose Alliance's plan to help families with children in school by providing tax rebates and credits and eliminating school fees," he said. "The Party believes that it is vital to have a strongly supported education system if we want to continue to thrive and grow a province.
"Everything has to be about the kids."
Miller said the Wildrose Party would work to reduce government spending by reducing the government manager ratio from the current four to one to about 10 or 12 to one.
"We don't want to decimate the government force but we would like to bring the wages more in line with that of private industry. We would also reduce the size of government and focus on the primary services, like teachers and nurses."
Miller said the Wildrose Alliance, although a Conservative party, is very different from the provincial PCs, in that it is more grass roots and likes to take its mandate formed by Albertans. He feels that Albertans have long needed another choice for a governing party and that the Wildrose Alliance is fully equipped to deliver.
"You need to get people to the polls and give them the chance to vote for the party they feel best fits their values."
Miller, who grew up on a farm at Westlock, is employed as an agronomy manager for Cargill (central Alberta) who has both an undergraduate and post graduate degree in plant science. He and his wife, Lora, are the proud parents of three children.
