Jeremy has 15 years of experience working with some of Alberta’s most vulnerable. His career has taken him to The Mustard Seed, Canadian Mental Health, and The Boys & Girls Club of Calgary.
Jeremy went into politics because he saw that everyday Calgarians were being hit hard by government bloat and inefficiency. He witnessed the difficulties of maintaining social programs when huge amounts of money went to paying interest and expanding the bureaucracy. Feeling the skills he had developed in the non-profit world be useful on the political scene and wanting to take action, he ran successfully to represent Calgary-Klein in the provincial legislature in 2019.
In 2022, Jeremy was appointed to cabinet as Minister of Seniors, Community and Social Services. Since taking on the portfolio, he has worked hard to ensure seniors and vulnerable Albertans get the support they need. Some initiatives he has taken include indexing AISH and the Alberta Seniors Benefit to inflation, increasing wages for front-line workers in the social sector and expanding affordable housing across the province. Jeremy currently leads the Calgary Public Safety and Community Response Task Force aimed at finding solutions to the ongoing addictions and homelessness crises in the city.
