I am excited to be seeking the nomination to be the NDP candidate in Saskatoon Churchill-Wildwood in the next provincial election. Churchill-Wildwood is a riding that our party needs to win to move closer to government. It is riding where I feel that can make difference in politics by contributing to forming a Saskatchewan NDP government that will fight against economic inequality, improve democracy, and re-invest in social programs.
As my time as SK NDP President has illustrated, I have the experience, expertise, and energy to take back this riding for our party. I am ready to win.
Saskatoon Churchill-Wildwood is part of the next tier of ridings that we have to win to form government. In the last election, we lost it by 934 votes. When I was President, the pundits said that we would not win the by-elections in Saskatoon Meewasin, Saskatoon Fairview, and Regina Northeast. But, with hard work, meeting lots of people on the doorstep, and using the latest campaign technology we beat the Sask Party by healthy margins and took back those seats for the NDP. Based on my experience in those by-elections, I have a three-point plan to win Saskatoon Churchill-Wildwood.
The NDP candidate for Saskatoon Churchill-Wildwood in the next provincial election will be elected by all NDP members who reside in the riding who are in attendance at an upcoming nominating convention. The time, date, and location of the nominating convention has yet to be set.
I need the support of NDP members in Churchill-Wildwood to become the NDP candidate and win the riding back for our party.

“I first met Dave when he was President of the Saskatchewan NDP, and as a young leader I’ve been fortunate enough to observe his leadership firsthand. He is a dynamic, smart and thoughtful leader who is passionate about building a better, stronger and healthier province. Along with the rest of the provincial executive, he worked hard to create our party’s first Indigenization Plan to ensure that our party took genuine and meaningful strides towards reconciliation. He is somebody who sees the value in every person’s perspective and I truly believe he would make an excellent MLA.”

From his study of political marketing and many years of community involvement, he has knowledge and innovate ideas to be a passionate and committed MLA for Churchill-Wildwood.”
