As we embark on the choice of a new leader and next Premier, I began asking myself “what qualities, values and principles should I be looking for”. One thing I knew for certain – we needed fresh, new ideas! As a former deputy mayor, another quality I wanted to see was someone who was engaged with our youth. The youth of today are our leaders of tomorrow. So who better to ask than my 18 year old son, Spencer.
We sat down and the first thing I asked Spencer was “Who do you like for leader of our party?” He had two people in mind – one is running and one is not. We talked about why these two – Spencer said because they are interested in the youth, they actually listen to us. Good answers!
Spencer and I do not always agree – but on the choice of leader we 100% agree!
The candidate we choose has integrity, compassion, and fiscal responsibility. He is a strong communicator not afraid to ask the tough questions, willing to listen and is engaged with our youth. He will bring the fresh new ideas that our party needs!
Together we are excited to join the team of TIM HOUSTON!
