Jason Stephan, your UCP candidate for Red Deer-South
Red Deer is my home. I graduated from Lindsay Thurber High School and served as its student body president. After saving money by working in the oil patch, at the age of 19, I moved to England to serve a two-year church mission.
Upon returning home, I attended RDC 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 and owner of CA Tax Law, the only tax law firm in Central Alberta, which has served many great businesses in Central Alberta.
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 happily married for over 20 years, and we are the parents of two sons and one daughter. Red Deer is our home.
We are living in interesting times. Our governments are failing us. Ineffective, inefficient, “status quo” governments with uncompetitive taxes, billion dollar debts and deficits are unsustainable and limit economic opportunities and freedoms for all of us, and even more so for our children. In these challenging times, our governments need to be much better.
My motivation for running is simple –to serve, and contribute to, and for, a new, better, United Conservative Government and to make Alberta better for our children.
