Wolseley, SK – Steven Bonk was acclaimed as the Saskatchewan Party candidate for the constituency of Moosomin in the upcoming 2020 provincial election.
“It has been a great honour having been able to represent the constituents of Moosomin since 2016,” said Bonk, “To have the full support of Saskatchewan Party members is encouraging for our party as we head towards the 2020 election.”

“In the Moosomin constituency, we have oil, gas, mining, pipelines, agriculture, and world class manufacturing. These industries rely on trade and exports. I am proud that our government has been relentless in our efforts to open new markets for our products”.
“Beyond the government investments, I also know that Saskatchewan has a great leader in Premier Scott Moe,” Bonk continued. “Scott will always stand up for the people of this great province, and I am proud to stand with him.”
Steven, his wife Candace, and their daughter, Emma, have strong ties to the Moosomin constituency. They are the fifth generation of his family to reside there.
The Saskatchewan Party has now nominated 29 candidates in advance of the October 2020 provincial election.
