|Preceded by||Bob Hawkesworth|

|Political party||Progressive Conservative Association of Alberta|
Hlady was elected in the 1993 general election as a Progressive Conservative in the riding of Calgary-Mountain View, defeating New Democrat Bob Hawkesworth. Hlady kept his seat in the 1997 and 2001 elections, but was defeated in 2004 by Liberal contender David Swann. During his term as an MLA, Hlady served on many oil and gas related committees.
Once Hlady graduated, he completed the Canadian Securities Course and became a stockbroker.
In the fall of 1992, he was asked to work on Ralph Klein’s leadership campaign. After Klein won the leadership race, Hlady was encouraged to run in Calgary-Mountain View against incumbent Bob Hawkesworth. During what is now known as “the miracle on the prairies”, the party overcame a significant gap in popular support, behind the opposition Alberta Liberal Party, to win the 1993 election. As an MLA, Hlady helped secure funding and supported initiatives such as the building of the Bow Valley Seniors Lodge, Wing Kei Care Centre, Soccer Fields in Renfrew and school playgrounds across the constituency.
Hlady was one of the youngest MLAs in Alberta’s history.
He ran as the party's candidate in the same district in the 2015 provincial election, but was not reelected.
