How important do you think it is to have our MLA be a member of the party that forms government

Having a local MLA in the legislature's governing caucus provides for opportunities for that MLA to advocate strongly for her constituents, knowing that her fellow caucus members will listen carefully and respond. I am running because I listen to all members of our community and as a government MLA would be in a position to push for those policies that meet the needs of all.
