Damien Kurek officially announced he is entering the nomination race to be the Conservative Party of Canada’s candidate in the constituency of Battle River-Crowfoot for the 2019 federal election.
Kurek offers a unique combination of experience and expertise to the people of this constituency with his deep roots in east central Alberta.
He grew up in Consort, Ab. where he continues to help run the fifth generation family farm.
He has held various leadership roles with not-for-profits and has strong community and church involvement.
In fact, his first involvement in politics began with the Board of the Battle River-Crowfoot Conservative Riding Association at the early age of 15-years-old.
“Battle River-Crowfoot has been well represented over the past two decades by the Hon. Kevin Sorenson.
“It has been a privilege to work for Kevin in Ottawa, while he was Minister of State (Finance), and in the constituency as one of his assistants,” stated Kurek.
“I was equally proud to have, in the wake of Kevin’s announcement, hundreds of folks from all across Battle River-Crowfoot ask me to consider running. After careful thought, prayer, and with support from my family, we have decided it is the right time.”
Kurek and his wife Danielle have two young sons.
“There is truly no place I would rather be than east central Alberta. The people, the landscape, and the values of this region holds a special place in Canada.
“I believe I have the passion, dedication and strong work ethic to provide Battle River-Crowfoot with the continued strong representation they deserve.”
Kurek has taken leave from his current job with Member of Parliament Kevin Sorenson as he seeks the CPC nomination in Battle River-Crowfoot.
Over the next few months, Kurek plans on travelling all over the constituency, discussing the issues, selling memberships and promoting common sense and grassroots conservatism.
