REGINA – New Democrats in the constituency of Regina Rochdale have selected Brett Estey as their candidate for the upcoming 2020 provincial election. The nomination was contested with Estey winning the nomination over Theresa Quinlan, a steamfitter and advocate for women in the trades.
“I’m running because I am very concerned about the Sask. Party’s attacks on our Crown Corporations and their inaction on climate change,” said Estey. “The Sask Party is putting our future at risk, and I look forward to representing the people of Regina Rochdale as part of a progressive New Democratic government that puts people first.”
Estey is a dedicated volunteer and has been a leader in Saskatchewan’s youth political community for years. He was an active member with the Saskatchewan Youth Parliament and has worked to engage and amplify youth voices in politics. He volunteers with the Ranch Ehrlo Youth Sports Venture, the Regina Red Sox and the Queen City Marathon. Estey has a bachelor’s degree in Political Science & History from the University of Regina, and currently works as an Insurance Broker.
“Brett is very knowledgeable about how the Sask. Party’s cuts have impacted young people in this province and has a strong vision on how to tackle our problems head-on,” said NDP Leader Ryan Meili. “Brett is a welcome addition to the 2020 team, and I congratulate him on his nomination.”
Estey previously ran as the NDP candidate for this constituency in the 2016 Saskatchewan provincial election. He is the eighteenth candidate nominated for the Saskatchewan NDP for the 2020 provincial election. The next nomination meeting will take place tomorrow – May 22, 2019, for Regina Walsh Acres at 7:00pm at the Italian Club where three candidates are vying for the nomination: Meara Conway, Gloria Patrick & Sandra Morin.
