John Voorhorst, born and raised in Southern Alberta. He married Jenny in 1975 and since then they raised six children. They have also been blessed with twenty grandchildren. John has been privileged to serve the UCP since its founding convention as one of two Southern Directors.
He and his wife Jenny own and operate an insurance and financial planning business in Lethbridge since 1989. The second generation have been involved for several years and recently a son and son-in-law together with their spouses have joined as shareholders.
John has served in his community on a number of non-profit boards over the years and he has also been actively involved in politics since 1985. He has sat on various political party boards since that time at both the federal and provincial level. Policy has been of interest but so has fund raising and governance. The most fun has always been at election time when door knocking allows him to market his conservative candidate and identify where the support can be found.
John would greatly appreciate the opportunity to serve the grass roots for the next two years and his commitment to you is that he will continue to promote unity and the conservative principles he has always held very dear.
