Dr. Raj Sherman Announces Nomination Candidacy for Edmonton-Whitemud

EDMONTON, ALBERTA – Dr. Raj Sherman, a long-time ER doctor and former two-term MLA announces his nomination candidacy in the constituency of Edmonton-Whitemud for the United Conservative Party of Alberta. Sherman says, “This is the riding of my political mentor, Honorable Dave Hancock. My family and many of my healthcare colleagues live here. The Socially Progressive and Fiscally Conservative values of this riding align with my values.”

Alberta is leading the country in economic and population growth. The fiscal books are balanced, and Alberta has a record financial surplus that is needed to invest in improving the lives of Albertans. With such good news on the economic side, Sherman believes that the UCP will succeed in the next provincial election and that it’s time Edmonton-Whitemud is once again represented in government. Sherman is committed to taking the voice of those on the front lines back to the Alberta legislature to tackle our communities’ challenges.

“Throughout my career, I have seen firsthand the issues facing Albertans and I am eager to get back to work on behalf of the good people of Edmonton-Whitemud,” said Sherman. “There’s lots to do including working on improving access to healthcare, supporting our seniors and vulnerable, affordability for families, investing in education, diversifying the economy and ensuring safer communities.”
