Gerald Soroka

Meet The Candidate

Gerald Soroka was elected to the House of Commons as the Member of Parliament for Yellowhead on October 21, 2019. He resides on a farm north of Evansburg on the original homestead that his grandparents moved to in May of 1930. He has lived there his entire life making him a third generation Yellowhead County resident.

Having been raised on the farm it was an easy progression for him to continue farming after graduating from Grand Trunk High School. He farmed and had two off the farm jobs over the next ten years until he went full time farming. During this time he was Vice President and President of West Central Forage Association as well as Vice President of the Alberta Forage Council.

Since living his entire life in the County and having a strong interest in improving his community, he decided in 2004 to run for Division One Councilor in Yellowhead County. When you get elected you learn that you may have gotten elected by your division but you are there to represent the best interests of the entire county. After one term as councilor, he decided to seek the position of Mayor in 2007, a position he held until being elected to Parliament. During his time as Mayor, he was also elected as Vice President of the Alberta Association of Municipal Districts and Counties from 2008 to 2010.
