InfoRandy Kamp grew up in Maple Ridge, B.C. and graduated from Maple Ridge High in 1971. He went on to complete a Bachelor's degree in theology and do extensive graduate studies in linguistics. From 1985 to 1992, he and his family lived in the Philippines where Randy was regional director for an organization doing linguistic work among minority language groups. Randy has also worked as a department store manager and administrative pastor and has served on the board of directors for a number of non-profit groups. He has also volunteered for a number of local community organizations. The common thread through Randy's life is his commitment to serving people.

In 1997, Randy was hired as the executive assistant to Grant McNally, who served Dewdney-Alouette as the Member of Parliament from 1997 to 2004. In that role, Randy got a first hand view of the everyday problems facing people in Pitt Meadows, Maple Ridge and Mission and when McNally retired, he was inspired to run for Parliament to make Canada an even better place in which to live and to make government more responsive and relevant to the people living in our communities.

On June 28th, 2004, Randy was elected as the Member of Parliament for Pitt Meadows - Maple Ridge - Mission. In his first term, Randy was quickly promoted to the position of Official Opposition Critic for Fisheries and Oceans on the Pacific Coast. He was also elected Chair of the Conservative Crystal Meth Task Force and took a leading role in the fight against crystal meth, an insidious drug that is invading our communities at an alarming rate.

On January 23rd, 2006, Randy was re-elected to the House of Commons. On February 7th, Prime Minister Stephen Harper appointed Randy as the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans.

Randy has been married to his wife Ruth for over thirty years. They have three adult children, two grandchildren and a basset hound named Bentley.
