Foothills and Okotoks area residents will go to the polls on June 30 to replace former Macleod MP Ted Menzies.
The Conservative nominee is John Barlow, former assistant publisher and editor of the Okotoks Western Wheel.
Barlow was previously defeated when he ran as the PC candidate for Highwood in the 2012 Alberta election. He was defeated by Wildrose leader Danielle Smith.
Fuller, an Okotoks resident, is a graduate of Holy Trinity Academy and currently works for Husky Oil in Calgary.
Fuller was student union president at the University of Lethbridge. He then went on to work for Elections Canada as a polling outreach worker and then went on to work political campaigns. He was campaign manager for former Lethbridge Liberal candidate Michael Cormican in 2011 and he was VP of fundraising for the Macleod Liberal electorial district association.
The June 30 Macleod byelection is one of four being held in Canada.
The terms will be somewhat short-lived as a federal election is expected to be held in October of 2015.
Menzies, a former minister who has held the Macleod riding seat since 2004 stepped down in November to become president and CEO of CropLife Canada.
