FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: April 4, 2019
Saskatoon, SK – Marv Friesen was selected by local Saskatchewan Party members to represent the constituency of Saskatoon Riversdale for the 2020 provincial election.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to represent Saskatoon Riversdale for the 2020 provincial election.” Friesen said, “I will work hard on behalf of everyone in this constituency and will always look for opportunities to help us grow stronger.”
Friesen is a co-owner of Marv’s 78 Auto & Tire and has been working in business for over twenty years. In addition to his busy professional life, Friesen has spent a lot of his time being involved with Bikes for Kids and the Care & Share program in Saskatoon, which invests in youth to ensure they have every opportunity and the tools needed to succeed in life.
Friesen said that one of the reasons he chose to run was the progress the Saskatchewan Party government has made on mental health and addictions.
“I’m encouraged by the leadership the Saskatchewan Party has shown these past few weeks by balancing the budget and increasing supports for those with mental health and addictions.” Friesen said, “We have more work to do in that area and I am ready to advocate on behalf of this constituency if elected in 2020.”
“I am excited about the opportunity to work alongside Premier Scott Moe, who has shown strong leadership in continuing and taking to the next level what our former Premier started.” Friesen said, “As a business owner, I’ve seen first-hand through people I’ve worked with – especially in Alberta – that the carbon tax is a game-changer; making it harder for families to make ends meet at the end of each month.
With this nomination, the Saskatchewan Party has nominated 34 candidates for the 2020 provincial election.
The next nomination meeting will be held in the constituency of Moose Jaw North on April 15, 2019.
