Some Happy News on A Personal Note

Kent and Deanna got married in Calgary in August.

It is an honour and privilege to represent Calgary’s urban centre since 2008 – first as a provincial MLA and now as your federal Liberal MP (Member of Parliament).

I’ve long said that I’m in this line of work for two reasons: to create good public policy for the long term, and, admittedly selfishly, to share my life with Calgarians.

It seems fitting that through this work, I met my partner Deanna. I’m thrilled to say that in August, Deanna and I got married here in Calgary. We both feel very lucky.

When we first met, Deanna was working at CUPS. As I often collaborated with CUPS on issues near and dear to my heart such as poverty, homelessness, and early childhood development, I started to get to know Deanna. Eventually we went for coffee, starting dating, and now here we are.

I am very thankful for Deanna, and for the wonderful group of family and friends who surround us.

As I can personally attest, politics can be a tough business, but I am so thankful and honoured to do this work and to represent the people of Calgary Centre. Although I have now tied the knot, rest assured that I remain focused on creating good public policy and sharing my life with each and every one of you.
