EDMONTON, AB — Michaela Glasgo says she is ready to get down to business after being sworn in.

Glasgo, the United Conservative Party representative for Brooks-Medicine Hat, was among the new MLAs officially sworn in Tuesday.

“The swearing-in process was a great opportunity to bring my family up here, and show them where I’ll be working for the next four years for the people of Brooks-Medicine Hat,” she said from Edmonton Thursday. “We’ve been having a blast. It’s very busy obviously, the learning curve is very huge, but I’m excited to get back to work, and get to work for the people of Brooks-Medicine Hat.

Glasgo said being an MLA started to sink in yesterday when she was sitting in her chair in the Legislature.

“It really doesn’t hit you until you do put your feet on the flood and sit down at your desk,” she said.

Wednesday’s Speech from the Throne clearly outlined the plans and priorities for the UCP during its term, says Glasgo, but the main priority is getting Albertans back to work.

“Our economic recovery starts by creating jobs, cutting job killing taxes and cleaning up the red tape,” she said. “We're really showing Albertans and employers and investors that we're open for business, and that Alberta is a place you want to to work and raise a family, and I think the throne speech outlined that very specifically.”

Glasgo says she is finalizing the locations of her constituency offices in Brooks and Medicine Hat.
