Mowat to represent NDP in upcoming by-election
Saskatoon - New Democrats gathered in a packed hall this evening and selected Vicki Mowat to be their candidate in the upcoming by-election in Saskatoon Fairview.
“The Sask. Party has made heartless cuts to the services people rely on in this province and people are fed up” said Mowat. “This by-election is an opportunity for the people of this constituency to send a clear message that the Sask. Party needs to stop making Saskatchewan people pay the price for their mismanagement, scandal and waste.”
Mowat was the NDP candidate for the constituency in 2016 and lives on the west-side of Saskatoon with her partner Grayson, a teacher. She works as the Executive Assistant to the Associate Dean of Aboriginal Affairs in the College of Arts & Science at the University of Saskatchewan. She previously worked as a Sessional Lecturer in Sociology at the University of Saskatchewan.
“In everything that she does, Vicki shows how hard-working, determined, and genuine she is,” said NDP Interim Leader Nicole Sarauer. “The results of the last election did not stop her from continuing to connect with people in her community and speaking out on their behalf. If elected, Vicki will be the strongest voice this area has seen in a very long time.”
