Jason Stephan for Red Deer-South

United Conservative Party Nomination Candidate

I am running to represent Red Deer-South. I grew up here. My wife Jennifer and I chose to raise our family here. 

I offer some excellent qualifications to serve as your MLA. 

Strong government requires honest individuals who support principles of freedom. Billion dollar deficits, higher taxes, and lower value for dollars spent all point to an opportunity for change. 

Lets do better. 

-Jason Stephan


Our Priorities

  • Repeal the carbon tax, reduce taxes, and restore tax competiveness in Alberta

My thoughts on dealing with governments (part 2 of 2)

In an earlier email, I shared my thoughts on education opposing Dave Eggen and the NDP.

My thoughts on dealing with governments (part 1 of 2)

This first email outlines a few thoughts for Alberta dealing with Canada (in matters including pipelines and equalization). My second email will outline some thoughts for Red Deer dealing with Alberta.

My thoughts on Education

Education, whether formal or informal, allows us, and our children, to be free, self-reliant, and to seek happiness as we individually see fit.
