Regina, SK – Tonight, Mark Docherty was nominated as the Saskatchewan Party’s candidate for Regina Coronation Park in the upcoming 2020 provincial election. Docherty ran for the nomination unopposed.
“It’s an honour to again have the support of Saskatchewan Party members in the Coronation Park constituency,” said Docherty. “I look forward to running once again in next fall’s election.”

“I think our Saskatchewan Party team has helped make significant improvements both here in Regina and around Saskatchewan,” said Docherty. “But, as we always say, there’s more to do. We have to keep our commitment make Saskatchewan the best place in Canada to work, live, and raise a family. Beginning with Scott Moe’s strong leadership, I’m very proud to be on the team once again as we head towards 2020.”
