I have been given the privilege of representing the Conservative Party in the
Random-Burin-St. George's for the upcoming Federal Election, Tuesday Oct.
14th, 2008. I am looking forward to travelling throughout the
region and meeting with constituents to discuss the issues and my
commitments to being your government voice in Ottawa.
As many of you already know, I am a proud Newfoundlander with a soft spot
for the rural areas. From my early childhood days travelling with my dad,
Walter H. Davis, along the coast on board the MV Christmas Seal during the
battle against tuberculosis, through to my career with CBC's Fisheries
Broadcast and Land and Sea, and onto my business career, I have gotten to
intimately know and appreciate rural Newfoundland and its people.
Over the years I have spent many hours listening to storytellers like Uncle
Steve Blagdon in Boxey, the Snooks from Sagona, the Pooles from Belleoram,
the Coxes in Wreck Cove and the Stewarts in Harbour Breton. And over the
past couple of years, I have spent countless hours meeting with the people
of Random-Burin-St. George's listening to the issues, challenges and
opportunities we all face.
Having worked on Parliament Hill, I have seen how MPs could make a positive
difference for their constituents. I have a keen understanding of the
challenges we face here and I am confident I have the drive and
determination to make a difference for you.

and what I can offer to you, the residents of Random-Burin-St. George's.
