Incumbent MLA for Lloydminster, Colleen Young, will be the Saskatchewan Party’s candidate in the 2020 general election.
Young has served as MLA since a by-election in 2014, winning her first full term in the 2016 general election. She’s pleased to have her caucus’ confidence for the riding and looks forward to some of the work she’s already put in meeting with her constituents.
“I’ve done a lot of community events, and gone out to my community for meetings, but I’m looking forward to getting back out and knocking doors one-on-one again, across my constituency just meeting people and talking to them to them and finding out what’s important to them, and what their concerns might be,” says Young.
Young says she continues to work on issues like cellular service and Highway 21 in the northern part of her constituency. She also hears from constituents about accessing healthcare, specifically mental health and addictions services. Going forward, Young says there will be a focus on issues faced by the oil and gas industry as well as the agricultural sector.
The issues across her constituency vary between urban and rural environments. Young says some constituents have issues important to them that others in another part of her riding haven’t even heard of. Young says that there will always be more work to be done in the community and beyond, but is happy to serve the people in her riding.
“It’s an honour for me to represent the people of Lloydminster, to listen to them and make sure that their voices are heard.”
