Liberal candidate Dr. Avalon Roberts is hoping third time’s a charm as she received the nomination Monday night for the Calgary-Glenmore constituency.

Roberts is looking to fill the vacant MLA left by deputy premier Ron Stevens.

“There are other politicians who have run several times before they have been successful.”

Roberts ran against Corey Hogan for the spot in the only contested party nomination in the riding.

Roberts said that the work begins immediately with door knocking, the set up of an office, website, Facebook page and Twitter for the byelection to be held in the fall.

Roberts said the issues are the economic situation and health care that affect not only the Calgary-Glenmore constituency, but those across the province.

Roberts will be running against PC candidate and Calgary Ald. Diane Colley-Urquhart and NDP candidate Eric Carpendale.

“This is not a personal campaign. We are running against the government which has been quite horrible in the past number of years,” she said.
