On your mark!

My mum and I spent an hour this afternoon vacuuming my campaign headquarters and wiping down the hard surfaces. How lucky am I to have my mum to help me with my campaign? Very lucky. My parents had me when they were young so they are in good shape, now in their mid-70s. My mum has lived here in Yellowknife full-time since retiring from work in 2007. My dad lives just west of Edmonton and will join us for the last stretch of the campaign. I feel very blessed to have their support.

Drop into my campaign office starting Monday and meet my mum. The office is downstairs at the YK Centre, in the same hallway as Gourmet Cup and For Men Only. Mum’s name is Anne, and she’ll be there from noon until 4 p.m. to answer your questions about the riding and voting. If you’d like to have a chat with me, she’ll set that up. Three more sleeps and off we go!
