Jason Nixon seeks re-election

Nixon wants to bring back common sense leadership

Jason Nixon is seeking re-election as MLA for Rimbey-Rocky Mountain House-Sundre.

His top priorities include getting Albertans back to work, re-energizing the economy, and getting pipelines built.

“The questions before our province this election is pretty straightforward,” says Jason. “ Are you better off than you were four years ago? Is your family? Are your neighbours? Is your community? For most, the answer is NO.”

According to the most recent data from Statistics Canada, 1,800 more jobs were lost in Alberta last month. There are 172,000 unemployed Albertans, and 12,000 more Albertans stopped looking for work.

“It doesn’t have to be this way,” says Jason. “United Conservatives have a real, comprehensive, and fully costed plan to fix this mess, and offer our province a brighter future.”

“The key is conservative unity. Our United Conservative party was created, first and foremost, to defeat the NDP and bring back common sense leadership.”

Jason served on the negotiation team that created a framework for unity between the Wildrose Party and the Progressive Conservative Party of Alberta. The agreement was ratified and approved by the members of both parties in July 2017. The UCP has since grown to more than 160,000 members, making it the largest provincial party in Canada.

Following the UCP’s first leadership race, Jason served as the Leader of the Official Opposition until Jason Kenney won a seat in a by-election. Jason has since served as UCP House Leader, overseeing the party’s operations in the Legislature.

Some of the UCP’s top priorities in this election include scrapping the Notley Carbon Tax, repealing Bill 6, restoring property and landowner rights, cracking down on rural crime, and standing up to Ottawa on pipelines and equalization.

“I have always believed an MLA’s first duty is to represent the people of our constituency. This has always been my top priority, whether it is defending rural healthcare, or demanding meaningful consultation on the NDP’s Bighorn plan,” says Jason. “Should the UCP form government, we will take this approach to the next level by guaranteeing our MLAs free votes, and bringing in electoral recall, so voters can fire MLAs who aren’t fulfilling their obligations.”

Jason is the eldest son of Pat Nixon, the founder of one of Alberta’s most respected not-for-profit organizations, The Mustard Seed. Prior to entering politics, Jason spent more than 25 years volunteering and working within The Mustard Seed community, serving as Executive Director between 2006 and 2011.

He is happily married to his high school sweetheart Tiffany, and is the proud father of Markus and twins Austin and Chyanne.
