EDMONTON, AB (January 15, 2016): Following a third quarter where Wildrose raised more money than all other parties combined, Wildrose more than doubled its Q3 total in Q4, Wildrose Executive Director Jeremy Nixon said today.
Wildrose brought in over $589,000 in political contributions in Q4 of 2015. This is Wildrose’s second largest quarter ever in personal donations, and the most any party has ever raised in the post-corporate donation era.
“We are so thankful for this show of support from Albertans in these tough economic times,” Nixon said. “These numbers reflect the growing strength we’re seeing in all areas of our party right now. We are Albertans’ conservative choice to defeat the NDP, and we’re proud to represent the common sense values Albertans are known for.”
Wildrose Leader Brian Jean attributed the record quarter to the excellent work of Wildrose MLAs, staff, and volunteers.
“I can’t say enough about how well our Wildrose team has performed over the last three months,” Jean said. “We are working very hard every single day to stand up for what matters most to Albertans – jobs and the economy. Albertans are seeing that and responding to it, as these excellent fundraising numbers show.”
