MLA Eric Rosendahl, West Yellowhead

thank you for Eric’s passion for his community. He could be
enjoying retirement by stepping away from years of career work and
volunteerism, but instead, he is willingly serving West Yellowhead as an MLA.
This speaks volumes about the passion he has for his community. I pray you
would channel his passion into great leadership, positive change, and
especially as a legacy to the next generation of leaders who are currently
looking to him.
