Ryan Domotor will be running as the Saskatchewan Party candidate for Cut Knife-Turtleford in the 2020 provincial election.

Domotor is the Chief Administrative Officer for the RM of Mervin and lives in Turtleford. He has previously served as deputy mayor and town councillor. Domotor defeated Dom McCallum of Cut Knife, who was the only other candidate to run for the position, at a nomination meeting in Mervin on November 28.

Domotor says he was inspired to run by Premier Scott Moe’s leadership.

“Premier Moe has been so strong for our province as he’s stood up against the Trudeau carbon tax, supported pipelines and advocated for our province’s industries and families. But in addition to these important immediate issues, Premier Moe has a long-term vision for Saskatchewan that I fully support.”

Cut Knife-Turtleford MLA Larry Doke announced he would not be running for reelection after representing the area since 2011. The Saskatchewan Party has held the seat since 2003.

The Saskatchewan provincial election is set for October 26, 2020.
