Carl Svoboda

Portfolio – Public Finance

He is presently in active retirement after a 32-year career as an engineer and manager in the petroleum industry, and he has maintained an interest in ongoing developments and issues affecting the industry.  Carl has great respect for the technological prowess of the industry and sympathy for its position, caught in the conflict between our society’s ongoing need for its products and the realization that fossil fuels must eventually be phased out for the good of the planet.  He would like to contribute to intelligent policies to manage this transition.

Carl has been on the EC for two terms and as now president of the party.
