Davidson — MLA Greg Brkich won a contested nomination last night to become the Saskatchewan Party candidate in Arm River for the next provincial election.
“I want to thank everyone who took the time to come to Davidson last night to support me,” Brkich said. “It’s very humbling and I look forward to being able to represent the constituents of Arm River in the next election.”
Brkich was first elected as a Member of the Legislative Assembly in 1999 and was re-elected in 2003, 2007 and again in 2011.
Brkich has served as the Deputy Speaker and Chair of the Committee of the Whole. Premier Brad Wall appointed him as Legislative Secretary to the Minister of Agriculture - Agriculture Programs Innovation Initiative. Brkich was also a Vice-Chair of the Caucus Standing Policy Committee on Intergovernmental Affairs and Justice and was a member of the legislature's Standing Committee on Intergovernmental Affairs and Justice as well as the Private Bills House Committee.
He currently serves as a member of Treasury Board, a member of Investment Board, a member of Privileges House Committee and Chair of the Crowns and Central Agencies Caucus Policy Committee and Standing Committees.
Brkich is proud of the many accomplishments he’s seen in his home constituency and throughout the province.
“The government continues to invest in our towns and rural municipalities through a steady stable formula allowing them to continue to grow,” Brkich said. “We’re also helping our seniors by adding new long-term care beds. We’ve built or are in the process of building 15 new long-term care facilities across Saskatchewan, which includes the new facility that opened in Watrous.”
“I am also very proud that the government has put forward yet another balanced budget, our seventh consecutive,” Brkich said. “Through balanced budgets and controlled spending we are keeping taxes low and ensuring Saskatchewan remains on a path of steady growth.”
Brkich is excited about the potential of Saskatchewan.
“I have always believed in our province’s potential and I want to see Saskatchewan continue to grow.” Brkich said. “We have so much to offer the rest of Canada and the world with our natural resources and our greatest resource of all, our people.”
With Brkich’s nomination as the candidate for Arm River, the Saskatchewan Party has nominated eight candidates for the next provincial election.
