Todd was elected as an MLA in 2015, re-elected in 2019, and has been a strong supporter of Alberta’s energy sector by fighting for the approval of all pipelines and the elimination of all out of touch environmental regulation such as the multi-billion-dollar carbon tax. Todd was born and raised in rural Alberta and his family has always lived in the Valleyview area. As a farmer, he has always been a strong opponent of any government-imposed regulations that threaten family farm operators. As a small business owner, he knows how essential low taxes and less red tape are to creating the free enterprise environment that individuals and businesses need to succeed. And as a father, he knows that the last government failed families with their out of control deficit spending that burdened Alberta’s children and grandchildren with billions of dollars of debt. Todd has been a strong voice for Central Peace-Notley as part of Jason Kenney’s UCP team by working to restore the Alberta Advantage and fighting for the common-sense issues that matter most to families and the people of Northwest Alberta.
