Aleana Young was nominated tonight to be the Saskatchewan NDP candidate in Regina University in the next election.
“I’m running because Saskatchewan people deserve better, particularly when it comes to this government’s cuts to education,” said Young. “I’m committed to advocating for teachers, students, and parents, to ensure that our school boards get the supports they need.”
Aleana is a respected leader in Regina. She has served as a Regina Public School Board Trustee since 2012, where she has been a tireless advocate for high-quality education for Saskatchewan students and properly resourced classrooms.
Young is also serving her second term as the Vice President of the Saskatchewan School Boards’ Association, where she advocates for all 27 school boards in the province and for local voices in education.
Young is active in her community, currently serving as the Vice President of Family Service Regina and as a member of the University of Regina Senate. She is also a small business owner, operating a cheese shop in the Cathedral neighbourhood, and loves running around Wascana Lake.
“Aleana’s a respected community leader and will be a strong advocate for the people of Regina University, both in the Legislature and in the community” said NDP Leader Ryan Meili. “She’s a welcome addition to the 2020 team.”
