MEADOW LAKE— MLA Jeremy Harrison will be nominated Saturday as the Saskatchewan Party candidate in Meadow Lake for the next provincial election.
“It has been an incredible honour serving the people of the Meadow Lake constituency,” Harrison said. “It has been a very humbling experience and I look forward to once again asking constituents for their support in the next provincial election.”
After Harrison was elected to the Saskatchewan Legislature in November 2007, he became the youngest Canadian ever to have been elected to both the House of Commons and a Provincial Legislative Assembly. He first served as Legislative Secretary to the Minister of Energy and Resources, Northern Resources and Oil Sands Development until he was appointed to Cabinet on May 29th, 2009. He served for over a year as the Minister of Municipal Affairs, Deputy Government House Leader, and as the Minister of Enterprise Saskatchewan and Minister Responsible for Trade. On December 5th, 2011, he was appointed as Government House Leader, a post which he currently holds.
Harrison also currently serves as a Member of the Board of Internal Economy, Member of the Legislation and Regulation Review Committee, Co-Chair of the Red Tape Reduction Committee and Member of the House Services Committee.
“I have a great attachment to our community and our City,” said Harrison. "Working with and serving the people of the Meadow Lake constituency will continue to be the focus of my efforts as an MLA if I am so fortunate as to be re-elected.”
Harrison says the Saskatchewan Party government is moving Saskatchewan forward.
“Our government has made very significant strides in making Saskatchewan the best place to live, work and raise a family,” Harrison said. “There is more work to be done and I am very motivated to play a constructive role in making that a reality.”
With Harrison’s nomination as the candidate for Meadow Lake, the Saskatchewan Party has nominated 11 candidates for the next provincial election.
