FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: November 30, 2018
Saskatoon, SK – Last night, Ken Cheveldayoff was acclaimed as the Saskatchewan Party Candidate for the constituency of Saskatoon Willowgrove for the 2020 provincial election.
“It is a great honour to continue to represent Saskatoon Willowgrove as the Saskatchewan Party Candidate,” Cheveldayoff said. “It’s an exciting time to serve in government and to be witness to 11 years of growth.”
Cheveldayoff was first elected in the 2003 provincial election in the previous constituency of Saskatoon Silver Springs. He was re-elected in both the 2007 and 2011 provincial elections and again in 2016 for the constituency of Saskatoon Willowgrove.
Since becoming MLA, Cheveldayoff has served in various roles including Minister of Crown Corporations, Minister of Enterprise Saskatchewan, Minister Responsible for SaskEnergy, Minister Responsible for Trade, Minister of Parks, Culture and Sport, Minister Responsible for the Public Service Commission, Minister of First Nations and Métis Relations, Minister Responsible for Saskatchewan Gaming Corporation, and Minister Responsible for Northern Affairs. He has also served as Minister of Environment, Minister Responsible for Saskatchewan Watershed Authority, and Minister Responsible for Saskatchewan Water Corporation.
On February 2, 2018, under Premier Scott Moe, Cheveldayoff was appointed Minister of Central Services, Minister Responsible for the Public Service Commission and the Provincial Capital Commission.
“We have accomplished a lot during our 11 years as government but there is still much work to do,” Cheveldayoff said. “Education, Health Care and Mental Health remain a priority. In Saskatoon, we enjoy new schools, have seen progress in the safety of our roads, and the construction of a Children’s Hospital will benefit all of Saskatchewan. I will continue to work with Premier Scott Moe and Stand up for Saskatchewan.”
Cheveldayoff and his wife Trish live in the Saskatoon Willowgrove constituency in Saskatoon where they have raised their two children who are both currently in university.
With Cheveldayoff's nomination, the Saskatchewan Party has nominated a total of 13 candidates for the next provincial election.
The next nomination meeting will be held in the constituency of Saskatoon Westview on December 5, 2018.
