Romy S. Tittel
I am a first-generation Canadian, born and raised in Calgary, currently residing in the Springbank area west of Calgary. My husband of 35 years and I own and operate PROCAD Software, which has been serving the process engineering community for 29 years.
Besides being a businesswoman, I was also the second female journeyman Electrician in Alberta. My skills and experience cross a wide range of fields from engineering to art.
I was the former Green Party of Canada candidate and CEO of the Foothills riding. I achieved the second highest GPC vote in Alberta and increased our membership by 45%. Here is a video from the forum in Pincher Creek from my 2015 federal election bid.
During this time, I helped with mentoring, recruiting and supporting my fellow Alberta candidates. I was also a key volunteer for the cross-Canada webinars put on by the Green Party of Canada providing technical support, answering questions and hosting. This resulted in my being voted the Green Party of Canada’s “Rising Star” of 2016.
My community involvements have included starting the first compost bin project with the local Boys Scouts group, volunteering at a local Art Centre and helping with art projects for City buildings. I have also helped with sponsoring and supporting new immigrants to Canada.
Between all my varied interests and jobs, I have gained a vast experience. Building ideas from scratch, utilizing technologies and bringing together people to create success.
I would not consider myself a “political” person, rather a person with a strong sense of morality and integrity who takes the opportunities life presents me to do my best to serve my community and my country.
I have faith in humanity to rise to the challenges we face now and in the future.
As the leader of the Green Party of Alberta, I will bring my robust experience in navigating the roller coaster that has been Alberta’s economy in my own business as well as my experience as the Green Party of Canada’s candidate for Foothills in the last federal election.
This experience has taught me that we must work together to ensure our decisions for the future bring the best options and solutions to bear.
My point of view on the future of politics in Alberta is to protect and strengthen our province but also respect our place in Canada and the world. Our human rights to agree or disagree exist for all of us.
The economic plan I will champion as the leader of the Green Party of Alberta is the “Doughnut Economics” based on Kate Raworth’s 21st century vision for our future economic health and prosperity.
The decisions we make here in our province are affected by and resonate throughout our world. The Green Parties around the globe are a powerful and a united force bringing the sustainable solutions that will help Albertans get ahead.
