Leela Sharon Aheer’s Experience

Knowing the qualifications of candidates running for public office is imperative for an educated vote.   Below is a simplified resume of Leela’s 48 years, over 40 of those have been spent living and working in Chestermere Strathmore.  Many of these experiences have lead to extensive dealings with various levels of Government, the direct handling of multi-million dollar budgets and the requirement to put others interests ahead of her own. As an MLA Leela works for and is accountable to you. Her first Private Members Bill in 2015 was the Recall Act, defeated by the NDP majority, which would have allowed constituents to hold their MLA accountable between elections.

Leela is currently the UCP’s Deputy Leader and last served in the Legislature as UCP Critic for Children’s Services and Status of Women. She formerly held the Shadow Ministries of Energy and Education under the legacy Wildrose party. She is also a successful musician and business owner.

After reading about Leela’s extensive experience I think you will agree that she has the skills and experience to be the most effective representative for Chestermere Strathmore
