Jason Stephan, United Conservative Party candidate for Red Deer-South

Jason Stephan

United Conservative Party

Red Deer is my home.

I graduated from Lindsay Thurber High School.

I attended Red Deer College as a student athlete, and then completed my business degree from the University of Calgary.

I also attended its law school, and with a lot of hard work, was awarded the gold medal for having the highest academic standing in my graduating class.

I am both a chartered accountant and a lawyer. I am the founder of CA Tax Law, the only tax law firm in central Alberta, which has served many great local businesses.

I want our city to be the best that it can be, so I co-founded, and currently serve as the president of the Red Deer Taxpayers’ Association to encourage our city to use hard-earned taxpayer dollars in an economic and efficient manner.

My wife Jenny and I have been married for over 20 years, and we are parents of two sons and one daughter.

We are living in challenging times. Our governments are failing us.

There are almost 25,000 less private-sector jobs than four years ago. Without taxes from private-sector businesses, and those who work in them, there is no sustainable way to pay for government services.

Consequently, in just four years, this government has increased Alberta’s debt by over $45 billion. That’s easily enough to buy every home in Red Deer.

Spending money you do not have is not the definition of successful government.

Alberta needs a government that understands how to attract investment and compete in the real world.

Red Deer needs strong representation to champion its strengths and its needs, someone who loves our city, and who will be listened to and respected by government.
