New Democrats selected Lorne Schroeder to be their candidate in the upcoming by-election in Melfort.
“The Sask. Party’s heartless cuts are making life more difficult for Saskatchewan people,” said Schroeder. “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.”
Schroeder is an organic beef farmer near LeRoy where he lives with his wife Theresa. They have five children and ten grandchildren. Schroeder has always been very active in the community. He served one term as the Reeve for the RM of Leroy, he serves on the board of the Farmer Direct Co-op and he has previously served as the LeRoy School Board Chair, on the LeRoy Credit Union board, LeRoy Ball club, curling club and Kinsmen Club.
“Lorne has deep roots in the community and he is a strong voice for rural Saskatchewan,” said NDP Interim Leader Nicole Sarauer. “Lorne is passionate about seeing everyone succeed and will speak out for everyone whose lives have been made more difficult by the Sask. Party’s heartless cuts.”
