Saskatoon, SK – Tonight, Kim Groff was acclaimed by Saskatchewan Party members in Saskatoon Centre to be their candidate in the upcoming 2020 election. This will be the first general election that Groff has ran for a political party.
“It’s an honour to have the support of the members in this great constituency,” said Groff. “I’ll be working hard to take this seat back from the NDP, and I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
Groff pointed to Scott Moe’s leadership and the Saskatchewan Party’s continued support for Saskatoon as one of the reasons he decided to put his name forward.
“It wasn’t too many years ago when the NDP was in charge of Saskatchewan and things were terrible here,” said Groff. “Everyone’s kids were leaving to Alberta and BC, there weren’t many jobs, and no one was optimistic about the future. Thankfully, with Premier Scott Moe and the Saskatchewan Party I know everything will continue to be much better in Saskatchewan, as it has been since 2007. We must keep that in mind as head towards the election in 2020, and I’ll be talking about that every time I door knock and speak to constituents.”
Groff grew up in small town Saskatchewan and has lived in Saskatoon for the past 35 years. Groff and his wife, Valarie, have two grown, married daughters who also reside in Saskatoon. He studied at the Saskatchewan Technical Institute (now Saskatchewan Polytechnic) and also Edwards School of Business at the University of Saskatchewan.
