Lon Borgerson was nominated as the Saskatchewan New Democrat candidate for Batoche. Borgerson was nominated this afternoon in St. Louis by New Democratic Party members from all over the Batoche constituency.
“It’s time to stop the cuts to education and healthcare,” said Borgerson. “It’s time to put people first and present a vision that shows how much we value our communities and the rural fabric of our province.”
Borgerson has lived in the Batoche constituency for 30 years, where he and his wife, Val, have raised two kids and made homes in the Davis, Red Deer Hill, and MacDowall areas. Educated at the U of S, Borgerson has been a teacher, principal, and SUNTEP coordinator. He served as the NDP MLA for Saskatchewan Rivers constituency from 2003 to 2007 and has a lifelong passion for service to his community and Saskatchewan. In his downtime, Borgerson enjoys gardening in the summer and cross-country skiing in the winter and making time to visit his grandchildren.
“Lon brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the team,” said NDP Leader Ryan Meili. “He has always been a champion for our education and healthcare systems and is committed to restoring and improving them.”
Borgerson is the twenty-third candidate nominated for the Saskatchewan NDP for the 2020 provincial election. The next nomination will be for Canora-Pelly this evening, October 26th at 5pm in Canora.
