Former Interim Conservative Party of Canada Leader and Sturgeon River-Parkland MP Rona Ambrose’s Constituency Assistant, Luke Inberg, is seeking the Conservative nomination in the riding.
A long-time resident of Morinville, Inberg moved to town in 1998 when his father transferred from CFB Trenton in Ontario to Edmonton Garrison. He currently lives in Spruce Grove.
Inberg is perhaps best known locally for his work with The Father’s House Christian Fellowship, where he worked after completing a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Alberta in 2006. At the Father’s House, Inberg performed both administrative and pastoral duties and was Executive Pastor when he left.
“My role was to help people and build a caring community—I think that’s important preparation for a career that’s all about helping people and representing a community,” Inberg said of his previous role at the church.
The former Morinville resident left the Father’s House in 2015 to pursue political aspirations. Starting as a volunteer on Rona Ambrose’s campaign team, Inberg continued by working at Ambrose’s Constituency Offices in Stony Plain and Morinville.
Inberg said his primary role was “meeting with constituents, hearing them out where they had a concern, and helping them out where they needed assistance.”
Acknowledging that tax hikes, a downturn in the economy, support for the energy sector and pipelines are the key issue affecting constituents currently, the nomination candidate says the people he has talked to want common sense, ethical leadership, and security that democratic freedoms, including freedom of speech, are not eroded. Inberg said, “seniors and the unborn are also top of mind.”
For Inberg, this includes “Promoting the humanity of unborn children and the strain of the ever-increasing cost of living on seniors with low fixed incomes.”
“It’s disturbing when someone tells you they eat cat food,” Inberg said, speaking of one constituent with whom he spoke.
