Will carry PC Banner in new constituency: Pallister
The Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba is pleased to announce Jeff Wharton as the nominated candidate for the next provincial election after securing the party’s nomination in the new constituency of Red River North.
“Jeff has been a wonderful representative for his constituents in Gimli,” said PC Party Leader Brian Pallister. “His record of public service make him the best choice to represent the new constituency of Red River North. I look forward to working with him as we build a winning team that will continue to earn the trust of Manitobans in the next provincial election.”
Jeff Wharton has been the Progressive Conservative MLA for Gimli since 2016. In addition to his role as an MLA, he currently serves as Minister of Municipal Relations. Prior to his election as an MLA, he worked as an entrepreneur and business owner in the moving and transportation industry, and served as a municipal councillor in the Town of Winnipeg Beach. Jeff is also a dedicated volunteer in the community having served as President and Vice President of the Lakeside Lions Club, a Director on the Evergreen Basic Needs Board, and a Director on the Gimli Seniors Residence Board.
In preparation for the next provincial election, the PC Party of Manitoba has begun the process of nominating candidates across the province. The December 2018 report of the independent Electoral Divisions Boundaries Commission made significant changes to the existing electoral boundaries. As a result, founding meetings for new or redrawn constituencies may be required prior to or in conjunction with the nomination meetings. We look forward to building a winning team that reflects the values of Manitobans and our vision for a stronger, more prosperous Manitoba. Additional founding and nomination meetings will be held in the coming weeks.
