Jared Clarke will be the Saskatchewan New Democratic Party candidate for the upcoming 2020 provincial election in the constituency of Indian Head-Milestone. Clarke won a contested nomination over Jackie Lazar, an accountant and former farmer, in front of a crowd of local New Democrats in Balgonie this evening.

“I’m running because I am deeply concerned about the government’s cuts to education and inaction for quality mental health services,” Clarke said. “It’s time for a government that puts people first. I’m committed to advocating for improvements in education, better care for our seniors, and transitioning to more renewable energy.”

Clarke is a community leader, elementary school teacher, farmer, and wildlife biologist. While not in the classroom, Jared is actively involved in the community, conducting a variety of conservation projects. He is also a father to twin girls and an avid volunteer.

“I’m excited to welcome Jared to our 2020 team,” said NDP Leader Ryan Meili. “Jared is a respected community leader and dedicated educator who understands the impact of the Sask. Party’s education cuts and who’s ready to do the work of forming a government that puts people first.”

Clarke is the sixteenth candidate nominated for the Saskatchewan NDP for the 2020 provincial election.
