Ken Francis Wins Contested Nomination in Kindersley
Kindersley, SK – Tonight, Ken Francis defeated five other nominees to become the Saskatchewan Party candidate for the upcoming by-election in the Kindersley constituency. Over 600 Saskatchewan Party members voted at the nomination meeting.
“I want to thank all of the members that came out to vote tonight – I am extremely grateful to all of our members,” said Francis. “I look forward to representing the Saskatchewan Party in the upcoming by-election and soon representing all residents of the Kindersley constituency - hopefully for a number of years to come.”
Francis lives in Kindersley and is a self-employed owner operator of a land and environmental company. Francis is also a current councilor and Deputy Mayor for the Town of Kindersley. Francis and his wife, Karen, have three children: Dacey, Dylan, and Dexter.
Francis noted that the Kindersley constituency has seen a decade of growth since the Saskatchewan Party’s election in 2007. Investments in Kindersley include an $80M investment in highways, an increase in revenue sharing of over 110 per cent for both Kindersley and Kerrobert, and a significant number of more physicians practicing in the constituency.
“I look forward to continuing the work of the Saskatchewan Party here in the constituency of Kindersley,” said Francis. “Like the rest of Saskatchewan, Kindersley really has grown stronger since 2007. I can’t wait to be a part of a strong team of government caucus members, and continue to work towards the 2020 election.”
Francis also noted that he looks forward to joining the Saskatchewan Party government to continue to stand up against the imposed federal carbon tax.
The Kindersley by-election is expected to be called in the coming months.
