    Shane Getson    MLA for Lac Ste. Anne - Parkland

    "I’ve worked with Travis for 3 years now and have had the chance to observe, and get to know him very well. He is the real deal, a man I can trust. He can rope, ride, wrangle the budget, make the deals we need down on Wall Street and in Ottawa. He’s not a career politician, a handshake still means something to him. I believe he is the person we want to represent Alberta as Premier. A person as comfortable in jeans and boots as he is in a suit and tie."

    "I am supporting Travis because he views humility as a guiding principle for leadership.  He has the proven skills to not only build a strong economy but to also be a responsible fiscal and civil manager.  He understands the diversity of our province and can comfortably talk to bankers and CEOs in New York, Toronto and downtown Calgary and then put on his boots and converse with ranchers, farmers and oil field workers.  It’s time for a new beginning and I believe Travis is the right person to lead us forward."
