Ryan Alaina McDougall

Alberta Party

I have lived in Red Deer for 21 years and have raised my children here, who are now 20 and 24 years of age.

I am a graduate of Red Deer College and hold a degree in governance, law and management from Athabasca University.

For the past 18 years, I have worked with families in legal crisis and victims of domestic violence in the legal field and as a mediator.

I volunteer speaking to single parents on issues of family law, as well as mentoring and guest speaking to RDC students over the last 15 years.

I also sit on the board of the Alberta Association of Professional Paralegals, as vice-president, spearheading the initiative to regulate paralegals in the province to bring accessibility of legal services to Albertans.

I have recently been honoured to be nominated for a Women of Excellence Award in business and the professions by the Red Deer and District Community Foundation.

My mediation background allows me to genuinely hear the positions of everyone, and understand their motives or concerns. I will not always agree with my constituents, but my job nonetheless will be to accurately represent what it is they want and need from their government.

I value hard work, innovation, respect and integrity, inclusivity and diversity.

My financial mindedness, legal understanding, socially progressive attitude, and collaborative approach has drawn me to run for MLA with the Alberta Party.

Stephen Mandel is the leader of the Alberta Party and the Alberta Party commits to fund the Red Deer Regional Hospital expansion.

I am an advocate and I will not shy away from holding any MLA accountable to the Albertans we serve and represent.
