Betty Nippi-Albright has been nominated as the Saskatchewan New Democrat candidate for Saskatoon Centre . Nippi-Albright won the nomination over her opponents Senos Timon and Naveed Anjum in front of hundreds of New Democrats in Saskatoon.
“We need a government that will stop letting people down and put people first,” said Nippi-Albright. “From poverty to addictions, the Sask. Party is failing people and it’s time we tackle these problems and stop pretending they don’t exist.”
Betty Nippi-Albright is a Cree and Saulteaux First Nation mother and grandmother with three children and seven grandchildren. Betty holds a Master’s degree in Political Studies and an Honours degree in Aboriginal Public Administration. She has worked in many roles including as a Child Care worker, Human Resources Consultant, Mediator, Federal Constituency Outreach Assistant, Governance Consultant, a Community Developer and Primary Health Facilitator.
Betty is deeply involved in the community and has served on countless boards, including the United Way, Mental Health & Addiction Services, National Aboriginal Diabetes Association, Diabetes Canada, Saskatoon Heart & Stroke Foundation, YWCA, and Saskatoon Sexual Assault & Information Centre.
“Betty is a great addition to our candidate team,” said NDP Leader Ryan Meili. “She has deep roots and years of experience working on behalf of the people of Saskatoon Centre, and she will be an excellent representative as the next MLA for Saskatoon Centre.”
Nippi-Albright is the twenty-seventh candidate nominated for the Saskatchewan NDP for the 2020 provincial election. The next nomination will be in the constituency of Regina Elphinstone-Centre on December 10.
