On October 2 yet another United Conservative Party (UCP) nomination candidate was announced for the Lesser Slave Lake constituency- John Middelkoop.
Middelkoop grew up just outside of Westlock and graduated from Kings University in 1994. He is married with three sons, one daughter-in-law, one grandson and another grandchild on the way.
Middelkoop is a practicing accountant and has worked in the Lesser Slave Lake area since 2001.
In 2002 Middelkoop put down roots as Angel Business Services in High Prairie, specializing in small business and agriculture.
Middelkoop has worked as a farmer, been involved in administrating numerous family camps, volunteered/served in his local church and coached hockey, baseball, and volleyball.
“I am running to represent the Lesser Slave Lake constituency because I believe we can restore the Alberta Advantage.”
“I know we can, and must work to give our children, our grandchildren, and all future generations of Albertans, the Alberta opportunities that many of us were fortunate enough to grow up with.”
Middleloop says he was encouraged to run by several businesses in High Prairie and Slave Lake. He adds he always had an interest in politics but never had the time and now that his kids are mature enough and all grown up he is able to purse it.
Middelkoop explains he is committed to the fiscal responsibility, controlled spending and living within peoples means, eliminating and reducing the barriers(the “red tape”) that make it difficult for businesses to operate successfully, the protection of family values and parental rights, and genuine representation on constituent issues and needs.
“I encourage everyone as young as 14 to get informed and be involved because by the next election they will be 18 and able to vote.”
