george dadamo enters liberal contest in calgary-glenmore.

With a website and Twitter account up and running, it appears that George Dadamo is in the race to represent the Alberta Liberal Party in the imminent Calgary-Glenmore by-election.

A radio broadcaster and media writer, Dadamo represented Windsor-Sandwich in the Ontario Legislature from 1990 to 1995, where he served as Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Transportation in Premier Bob Rae‘s NDP government.

While running a candidate with government experience would be a big catch for David Swann‘s Liberal Official Opposition (and a vote of no-confidence in Brian Mason‘s NDP), I can imagine that his opponents in the nomination race and the by-election won’t hesitate to highlight any Rae Days connections of Dadamo’s past.

UPDATE: Soon after this was posted, Mr. Dadamo’s campaign provided me with a campaign biography.
