Serving as a town councillor in Penhold for two terms, Alberta Party candidate for Innisfail-Sylvan Lake, and certified management consultant Danielle Klooster, is hoping to take her passion for business to the Alberta legislature.

What policies are you looking to really stress during this election?

“I really really want to stress The Alberta Party’s business policy, the policy around small business. Reducing the tax from 12% to 10%, doubling the deduction, doing a full cost of business analysis and seeing where we can do better for small business. We need to diversify the economy and we need to give business the opportunity to blossom and bloom.”

What is something you are most proud of about your party?

“With this particular platform that we got for the election, I’m probably most proud of the dental care for children policy. Providing free checks up for children, that’s a game changer really, and it really sets us above other provinces and other parties because it will just make such a difference in the lives of family’s and children.”

What would you say is an area of expertise within your party?

“So I’m a certified management consultant, and I do a lot of strategy with business and not-for-profits. I also do a lot of planning, so strategic planning, training, coaching for start-up businesses, and I’m really really really passionate about business, and passionate about great planning and being strategic in our approach, but I’m also really passionate about some of the issues like long term care and health care in our provinces. Those are issues that are just not getting fixed.”

What is your attachment to this area?

“Well I have lived in central Alberta since 1997, and in Penhold since 2009. My dad was born in Rocky Mountain House and so I’m multigenerational from the area, and I just love this region.”
