Saskatoon Meewasin selects Nicole White as NDP candidate

Nicole White has been nominated by New Democrats in Saskatoon Meewasin to be their candidate in the next provincial election.

 

“Nicole is a true community champion and will make a great MLA for the people of Saskatoon Meewasin,” said NDP Leader Cam Broten. “Throughout her career and her volunteer work, she’s been absolutely tireless about making our city and our province a better place for everyone to live. She’s already been widely recognized throughout Saskatchewan for her work and the determination and compassion she brings to it, and I look forward to all that she will accomplish as an MLA.”

 

White has been recognized with a YWCA Women of Distinction Young Women to Watch award; the Saskatchewan Centennial Medal; the University of Saskatchewan Doug Wilson Award; the Avenue Community Centre’s Community Service Award; and a nomination for the Athena Young Professional Award.

 

“I really appreciate Cam's approach to politics, which is about ensuring that people are doing well,” said White. “That means improving health care, seniors care and education. It means tackling poverty and addressing the cost of living. It means championing human rights and celebrating diversity. And it means better environmental protection and more clean, renewable power. These are the kinds of issues I keep hearing about in Saskatoon Meewasin, these are the issues that Cam and the NDP team have been focused on, and these are the kinds of issues I'll be standing up for."

 

White is the financial literacy coordinator for READ Saskatoon and a board member of the Quint Development Corporation. She has served as the chair of the Saskatoon Police Advisory Committee on Diversity, and volunteered with many organizations including the Saskatoon’s Women’s Community Coalition, the Saskatoon Diversity Network, the Avenue Community Centre and Oxfam.
