Conservative Gerald Soroka is running again to become the member of Parliament for the Yellowhead riding, which includes the town of Jasper.
Soroka officially began his re-election campaign by dropping off his first lawn signs on Aug. 15.
“Over the past 22 months it has been my honour to serve as your Member of Parliament and I look forward to seeking your support for another term,” Soroka said in a statement.
“Alberta and Canada need a plan to get our economy back on track and ensure the west is treated fairly within confederation. Not only do Conservatives have an idea to make that happen, we have a plan.”
Yellowhead, a large riding that stretches as far as Grande Cache, Rocky Mountain House and Caroline, has been a Conservative riding for 19 years.
The seat was held by Conservative MP Jim Eglinski from 2014, but he did not seek re-election in the 2019 federal election.
Soroka campaigned across the riding in 2019 and won 82 per cent of the Yellowhead vote.
Soroka is a third-generation Yellowhead county resident who lives on a farm north of Evansburg on the original homestead his grandparents settled in 1930.
He served almost 12 years as the mayor of Yellowhead County and has served as the vice president and president of the West Central Forage Association, as well as the vice president of the Alberta Forage Council.
The 2021 federal election will take place on Sept. 20.
