The Saskatchewan New Democrats in the Last Mountain Touchwood constituency have chosen Thera Nordal to be their candidate for the next provincial election. Nordal won a contested nomination over Don Jewitt a long-time teacher and school administrator in-front of a crowd of nearly 150 New Democrats gathered together in Lipton this afternoon.
“As a mother of three children, I have seen the damage done by cuts to funding in our classrooms,” said Nordal. “I look forward to standing up for my kids and future generations against the Sask. Party’s hurtful cuts and lack of vision.”
Thera is a small business owner and farmer. Her and her husband have ran a business near Southey for eleven years providing repairs and fabrication needs of farmers in the area. She is very active in her community serving as president of the Southey Soccer Club and having coached skating, hockey, soccer and baseball.
“Thera is a welcome addition to our 2020 team, she is a strong advocate for her community, and she will be a strong voice for the constituents of Last Mountain Touchwood,” said NDP Leader Ryan Meili.
Nordal is the eleventh candidate nominated for the Saskatchewan NDP for the 2020 provincial election. The next nomination meeting will take place on April 13, 2019 for Regina Gardiner Park.
