Andrew Hutton (October 8, 1953 – August 18, 2014) was provincial level politician from Alberta, Canada. He served as a member of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta from 2001 until 2004.

Political career[edit]

Hutton was first elected to the Alberta Legislature in the 2001 Alberta general election. He defeated incumbent Howard Sapers to pick up the Edmonton-Glenora electoral district for the Progressive Conservatives.[1]

Hutton focused his time in office on improving education in Edmonton by holding a series of open forums at Edmonton area schools. He held the forums in an attempt to lobby the provincial government for more money to improve programs and school infrastructure.[2] He also gave a 2 million dollar cheque to the YMCA Edmonton with funds raised through Alberta Lotteries.[3]

Hutton ran for a second term in the 2004 Alberta general election but was defeated by Bruce Miller a candidate of the Alberta Liberals.[4] He died on August 18, 2014 after an illness.[5][6]
