Chamber staffer seeks UP nomination for Red Deer North



If you like this, share it!

“It’s with great excitement, enthusiasm and energy that I announce my bid to seek the UCP nomination for Red Deer North. To me there is no greater or more important way to serve our community than making meaningful improvements to the lives and livelihoods of Albertans.

Everyday I’ve heard the harmful impact our current government’s policies have had on Albertan’s. Through the Carbon Tax, the NDP has raised the cost of living and doing business while exacerbating the effects of the worst recession to hit Alberta in a generation. The results are fewer high-paying jobs and many Red Deer North families worse off than they were four years ago.”

According to Warkentin, Red Deer North needs strong representation that will see to the much needed expansion of the hospital, eliminate the carbon tax, tackle mental illness, work closely with the RCMP and stakeholder groups to address the root causes of crime and addiction that are plaguing our city, and undertake reform necessary to fully restore our economy and the quality of jobs in our city.

For the past five years Reg has worked for the Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce as the Policy & Advocacy Manager.  In this role, he works on behalf of the community and small businesses to foster community partnerships and promote growth and prosperity by advocating to all three levels of government for lower taxes, and fewer regulations.

An avid volunteer, Reg is the Co-Chair of the 2019 Canada Winter Games Sustainability Committee, founding member and President-Elect of Red Deer Rotary Club Urban Spirits, Board member for the Red Deer College Alumni Association, Past Chair of the City of Red Deer Environmental Advisory Committee, volunteer for the Smiles Thru Lindsey Foundation, and past member of the United Way Priority Impact Team.

As a proud resident of Red Deer North, Reg says he understands the unique challenges and opportunities the constituency faces. “It’s incredibly important to me that Red Deer North have political representation that truly understands the priorities and issues facing our community and the know-how to address them.”

Reg was raised in North Red Deer and resides there along with his wife Roxy, their two children, William and Ellie, and their terrier, Augy.
