Nomination Date: 13/10/2018
Gerald Soroka is the Member of Parliament for Yellowhead.
He comes from a long line of farmers and has farmed for the majority of his life where his grandparents homesteaded in the 1930s. This is where he still lives today, a proud resident of Yellowhead riding.
Gerald has always had a strong interest in serving his community and working to solve problems that face his fellow residents. To this end, he took on posts as Vice- President and President of West Central Forage as well as Vice-President of the Alberta Forage Council.
Looking to solve problems at a larger scale, Gerald went on to serve as a Division one Councillor and Mayor of Yellowhead County before making the jump to federal politics. During his time as Mayor, he was also elected as Vice President of the Alberta Association of Municipal Districts and Counties (Now RMA) from 2008 to 2010.
