The Saskatchewan New Democrats in the Saskatoon University constituency have chosen Jennifer Bowes to be their candidate for the next provincial election.
“So many hard-working families are contributing to this great province, but just aren’t feeling the benefits,” said Bowes. “This is why I’m proud to be a part of Ryan Meili’s team, putting people first by fighting for a $15 minimum wage, universal access to mental health care and investment in our kids’ futures.”
Bowes is a union representative with SEIU West for workers in the healthcare sector, and has worked at the Saskatoon Correctional Centre, as well as with the Ministry of Social Services as an income assistance worker.
She has a passion for justice, and has served as a director, and in various other executive board roles, with the Elizabeth Fry Society of Saskatchewan. She holds a degree in Psychology from Queen’s University.
“I’m thrilled to welcome Jennifer to our 2020 team,” said NDP Leader Ryan Meili. “This government has taken the working people of this province for granted and Jennifer will be a strong voice for them and for all the people of Saskatoon University.”
Bowes is the fifteenth candidate nominated for the Saskatchewan NDP for the 2020 provincial election. The next nomination meeting will take place on May 7, 2019, for Indian Head-Milestone.
