John Roggeveen is 54 years old. He has lived in Alberta since 1964 and in Calgary since 1986. He is married with three adult children, all of whom attended Calgary public schools and are now attending post-secondary schooling at universities in Calgary.
John is a lawyer who has a general practice as a sole practitioner in Calgary focused on working for individuals and small business people for the most part and has run previously for the Alberta Liberals in 2004, 2008 and 2012.
John is concerned about reforming the tax system to return to a progressive taxation model, assisting small business as the true drivers of the Alberta economy, reforming the electoral system, and elimination of the persistent under funding of education, both at the K-12 and post-secondary levels.
He is also concerned about the mismanagement of the Health care system and seniors' care by the PCs.
