Incumbent Grant Hunter is seeking re-election as the MLA for Taber-Warner for the United Conservative Party.
Hunter was first elected in 2015 and re-elected in 2019, and has a Bachelor of Science degree and a Masters of Business degree. Hunter has been an entrepreneur most of his life and so he knows what small businesses have to deal with.
In 2019 Grant was tasked with setting up Alberta’s Red Tape Reduction strategy. He was a member of cabinet for two and a half years as an associate minister while he took Alberta from a grade of F to a grade of A on the Canadian Federation of Independent Business’ Red Tape Report Card. This was the first time that Alberta had ever received a grade higher than a D.
Hunter has been working for the past two years on building a super-cluster of agri-food processors in southern Alberta. He was instrumental in the Highway 3 twinning, the 230,000 acre irrigation expansion, and the Lethbridge Exhibition Centre expansion.
Hunter is running again to finish the work on the agri-food processing corridor and to serve the people of Taber-Warner.
Hunter did not respond to requests for an election profile feature.
