Shayne Lazarowich, executive director of the Prince Albert Multicultural Council (PAMC), will be the NDP’s candidate in Prince Albert Carlton in the next provincial election.
Lazarowich was chosen by New Democrats in the constituency in a contested nomination vote Thursday evening.
“Shayne will be an excellent MLA for Prince Albert Carlton families,” said NDP Leader Cam Broten, who attended the nomination meeting and welcomed Lazarowich to the team of NDP candidates. Broten pointed to Prince Albert families’ need for better representation."
“This city and region really deliver for the economy, but they’re not getting their fair share in return. They need an MLA who will put Prince Albert first,” he said. “The government refuses to commit to the desperately needed second bridge, pushing the city instead into a costly P3. They’ve been ignoring the fact that wait times in health care – in emergency rooms and for specialists – are too long. The current P.A. MLAs have been ignoring the rising cost of living problems, even as families are finding it harder and harder to get ahead. People in Prince Albert deserve so much better.”
In addition to his leadership at the PAMC, Lazarowich serves as a board member for the Prince Albert and District Chamber of Commerce, president of the Canadian Mental Health Association (PA Branch) and a board member for the Saskatchewan Association of Immigrant Settlement and Integration Agencies. He is involved in a number of other organizations including the Multicultural Council of Saskatchewan and the Prince Albert Diversity-Wise Committee.
Lazarowich and his wife live in the Prince Albert Carlton constituency. Lazarowich is a member of the popular and successful roots band All Mighty Voice.
