The new MP for Edmonton West, Kelly McCauley, was mentored in politics by fellow Edmonton MP Laurie Hawn. McCauley says Hawn taught him to be in politics to get good things done, not to advance your career. He has been named the Official Opposition Critic for Public Services and Procurement.
Born and raised in North Vancouver, McCauley is a graduate of the British Columbia Institute of Technology. He worked in hospitality management for 26 years and in several Canadian cities.
After volunteering for the Greater Victoria Eldercare Foundation, McCauley has become passionate about seniors issues.
McCauley is married and has two sons.
