A Message From Hugh
Dear Calgary Centre Constituents,
My name is Hugh Thomson and I am running to be the Conservative Party of Canada Candidate in Calgary Centre because I believe it is time for stronger representation for our community in Ottawa.
I have worked in the Oil and Gas business as a Chartered Accountant and Chief Financial Officer for over 25 years. Over the past 4 years, I have witnessed the destruction of the junior oil and gas sector in Alberta. The energy sector can be volatile, but it feels different this time. Calgary Centre needs a Member of Parliament with real world experience, who knows what it means to make payroll. I have founded many junior oil and gas companies, employed dozens of people, and created significant investment in our economy.
Alberta certainly needs to diversify its economy which realistically means transforming some of our energy technology to other uses over time. In Calgary, we have the talent and we certainly have the office space. The issue is how to attract technology companies to our fine city. We can do that by voicing our concerns in Ottawa to ensure that Calgary (and Alberta) returns to being an attractive place to do business. If elected as your MP, I will work hard in Ottawa towards this end.
I have lived in Calgary Centre for most of my life and now reside in the community of Britannia. I have a strong commitment to this City, which began with my mother growing up in the Beltline. My father was a Member of Parliament for Calgary South and both my parents instilled in me a sense of dedication to public service. I know what it takes to be an MP and my family supports me in this endeavour.
I need your help in my quest to become your Calgary Centre Member of Parliament.
Please consider buying a membership to the Conservative Party of Canada and supporting me in the nomination. If you are already a CPC member, I would appreciate your support. You can also support me by making a donation and/or volunteering on my campaign.
I will work hard on your behalf to make sure the real facts are heard and to restore the Alberta economy.
You can simply leave a comment or provide your name and contact information for Hugh to follow up with you.
