Regina – Yens Pedersen was nominated tonight to be Saskatchewan NDP candidate for the upcoming Regina Northeast by-election.
“The Sask. Party has been taking people’s support for granted. This by-election is a chance for the people of Regina Northeast to send a message to the government that they are fed up with the Sask. Party paying for their mismanagement through cuts on the backs of the most vulnerable,” saidPedersen.
Yens Pedersen grew up on a small family farm near Cut Knife. He has worked as a lawyer in Regina for 20 years, representing family owned businesses, farmers, and individuals.
Yens is an active community member teaching beekeeping classes and having served on various non-profit boards and on the School Community Council at his daughters' school.
“Yens will be a strong voice in the Legislature for the people of Regina Northeast,” said NDP Leader Ryan Meili. “New Democrats packed the hall tonight and I know we'll be working hard every day from now until the by-election to elect this dedicated community leader."
