Edmonton Strarthcona PC Candidate MIA

Meet another PC candidate who is internet challenged. Unlike his boss though this guy is a member of the net generation.

T. J. Keil is Ed's boy in Edmonton Strathcona.TJ to his friends. But he doesn't have much of a campaign or a hope in hell of winning . The PC's have given up on Edmonton Strathcona leaving it for the NDP to retain.

Not for signs or literature would I have known who this guy was, Nor do I find out much from his sparse web page.

T.J. enjoys many different sports, traveling, and participating in journalism and broadcasting.

For instance we find that this is on the candidates itinerary page;

T.J.'s upcoming appearances
Coming soon.

And then we find he has no events planned, half way through the election......

This page will soon hold information about T.J.'s campaign events in the Edmonton-Strathcona area.

And it only gets worse..... being one of those hip internet savvy politicians T.J. has his own blog....not....

Instead I have to visit his Facebook page to find out anything about him. Like last year he worked on one of the campaigns for one of the unnamed, unsuccessful candidates for Ralph's job.

T.J. was an active volunteer in the 2006 Leadership Campaign, organizing membership and campaign data and worked on the get-out-the-vote strategy.

And that he really, really, wants to represent us in Edmonton Strathcona.

T.J. has decided, after being involved in politics for most of his teen and young adult life, to throw his hat into the political ring. “This is something I really want to do right now”, he says. “It would be an honour to represent Edmonton-Strathcona as a Member of the Legislative Assembly.”
Not likely TJ.

Can you say parachute candidate....

Tory candidate drops out

Notley's chances grew Sunday with news that the Tories' candidate in Edmonton-Strathcona has dropped out, leaving the party scrambling to fill the slot.

Hughena Gagne, a staffer in Finance Minister Lyle Oberg's office, had been nominated. "She just didn't want to run," a senior Tory campaigner said. The party expects to replace the candidate later this week.

Yep the PC's have abandoned Edmonton Strathcona to the NDP.

I suggest you look again Eugene. Our website is finally as we'd like it :)

We are working very hard in Edmonton Strathcona. As I'm sure you know, the main thrust of that effort is doorknocking. Thanks for getting the name and website out there though! Every voter helps!
