Like all New Democrats, I was frustrated with the results of the last provincial election. We were unable to significantly increase our presence in the legislature and get our party back on the road to government. Nonetheless, opportunity can come out of disappointment in politics. We now have the occasion to rethink how we do things and make necessary changes to strengthen us going into the next election.
I am running for President of the Saskatchewan NDP because I believe that I have the expertise and experience to rebuild our party for the future. I hope that you will support me as we begin the process of revitalizing and renewing our party.
To rebuild our party, we have to re-think the way that we do things and not be afraid to embrace wide-ranging change.
As President, I will have three priorities as we rebuild our party for the future.
The next President of the Saskatchewan NDP will be elected by delegates at the party’s upcoming convention to be held on October 21 to October 23 in Saskatoon at TCU Place.
To become a delegate, you must be elected by your local riding association at its Annual General Meeting.

I have known Dave since 2007. Through our many interactions I have come to know that Dave is full of ideas for building our movement as well as strengthening our electoral strategies. But Dave is more than just ideas, he is a doer. That is what makes me the most excited about Dave becoming our party president. We need to implement new ways of engaging with people to build our movement. Dave not only has the ideas but also the follow-through to ensure this happens.”
