The list of candidates seeking to replace Don MacIntyre continues to grow.

Two more people this week have entered the UCP nomination race for the Innisfail-Sylvan Lake Constituency – Christine Moore and Victor Sloboda.

Moore is the Division 6 Councillor for Red Deer County. She is a former Board Chair for Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools, former Co-Chairman of Child and Family Services Authority for Central Alberta, and is Co-chair for the annual Sheraton Celebrity Dance Off charity event.

“In the wake of our MLA resigning unexpectedly, after a decade of division, I believe that it is time for our community to move forward.  This community needs a representative with a proven track record of balancing budgets, standing up for their community, and someone with the experience to deliver on their promises,” Moore said in a release.

Moore was the Progressive Conservative candidate for Red Deer – North in the 2016 provincial election, losing to Kim Schreiner of the NDP.

Sloboda lives in Sylvan Lake and has worked for The City of Red Deer since 2013 as a Plumbing/Gas Inspector. The husband and father of six is a long-time coach with Sylvan Lake Minor Football.

Moore and Sloboda join Joan Barnes, Devin Dreeshen, Gayle Langford and Mike Walsh in the race to replace MacIntyre, who resigned last month.

A by-election for the Innisfail-Sylvan Lake constituency has yet to be announced, but must take place prior to August 5.
