CALGARY – Joseph Schow, who directed field operations for Jason Kenney’s leadership campaign, has won the United Conservative Party nomination for Cardston-Siksika.

Out of 3,426 ballots cast, Schow received 1,955 compared to runner-up Marc Slingerland’s 1,468. Schow was congratulated in a statement by Kenney.

“Joseph’s long-standing commitment to public service, and the promotion of strong conservative values, will be (a) huge asset to our team as we prepare to fight the 2019 election,” the UCP leader said. He called the close race a sign of momentum for the party.

Schow has also worked as a legislative assistant on Parliament Hill and for the UCP caucus in Edmonton, and as a campaign manager. He also owned a communications business and holds a master’s degree in political management.

Cardston-Siksika will be a new electoral district in 2019, consisting of portions of the former Little Bow and Cardston-Taber-Warner districts. It includes Vulcan County, Cardston County, northern areas of Lethbridge County and the MD of Taber, and the Blood and Siksika reserves.
