FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 14, 2019
Saskatoon, SK – Long-time Saskatchewan Party MLA, Don Morgan, was acclaimed by local party members to be the nominated candidate for Saskatoon Southeast in the 2020 provincial election. Morgan has served as the MLA for that constituency since 2003.
“There was a moment when I thought about hanging it up and moving on from politics, but I’m just having too much fun and continue to enjoy working on behalf of the residents of Saskatoon Southeast,” said Morgan. “I am so honoured to have the opportunity to keep representing my constituents as we head into the 2020 election.”
Morgan has served in many roles in government since he was first elected in 2003, including as Minister of Education, Justice, and Advanced Education. He also served as Deputy Premier under Premier Brad Wall from 2016-2018. Morgan was also one of the first Saskatchewan Party members to ever win an urban constituency in the 2003 general election.
Morgan pointed to the substantial growth in Saskatoon and across Saskatchewan and the record of investment in the province that followed since 2007 as one of the reasons he decided to run again.
“Saskatoon has grown so much since 2007, and we have worked to keep building our province during that time,” said Morgan. “We need to keep that momentum going – we need to keep improving quality of life for people in Saskatoon and across our province.”
"I’m looking forward to working with Premier Scott Moe to stand up for the Saskatchewan people, and I can’t wait until the 2020 election!”
With this nomination, there are now 21 Saskatchewan Party candidates nominated for the 2020 election.
The next nomination meeting will be held in the constituency of Saskatchewan Rivers tonight, January 14, 2018.
