About Evan Berger
I was born in High River and raised on a mixed farm southwest of Nanton. Along with my wife Laurie I continue to operate the farm/ranch augmented with occasional weekend help from our 2 daughters and son.
I was elected to council of the MD of Willow Creek in 1992, then elected Reeve in 1998 and served in that capacity until March of 2008 when I was elected as MLA for Livingstone-Macleod. I also served as Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Sustainable Resource Development from 2008-2011 and as Minister of Agriculture from October of 2011-2012.
I have been a member of the following organizations:
- Conservative Party of Canada - Foothills EDA Board
- Mosquito Creek Foundation
- Nanton Recreation Board
- Nanton Curling Club
- Willow Creek Regional Fire Services Committee
- Heritage Acres Antique Society
- Stavely Elks Club
Why I am Running
To be an effective MLA requires a strong support network, the ability, the desire, and 110% commitment to serve the people and the communities of the constituency and the province. I have that network, ability, desire and commitment.
I have been encouraged by the many conversations, calls, notes and messages of support urging me to please run again. I believe everyone has a role to play in building a positive future for all Albertans, and I want to be your voice at the Legislature.
I enjoy spending time in the community, working to engage with the community, working to learn the needs and aspirations of the community, and I am committed to working to fulfill those needs and aspirations.
I am proud and confident the leadership being demonstrated by Premier Prentice is setting a new and more stable path forward for Alberta and although there will be challenges, I am confident under his guidance, and with your participation we can keep Alberta the best jurisdiction in the world to work, live and raise a family.
