Will carry PC Banner in new constituency: Pallister
The Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba is pleased to announce Kelvin Goertzen as the nominated candidate for the next provincial election after securing the party’s nomination in the redrawn constituency of Steinbach.
“Kelvin has been a tremendous representative for his constituents in Steinbach,” said PC Party Leader Brian Pallister. “His record of public service makes him the best choice to continue to represent the constituency of Steinbach. 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.”
Kelvin Goertzen has been the Progressive Conservative MLA for Steinbach since 2003. In addition to his role as an MLA, he currently serves as Minister of Education and Training, as well as Government House Leader. Kelvin has degrees from the University of Manitoba in economics, commerce and law, and has worked for a major financial institution and a property development company. He is extremely active in his local community, having served as vice-president of both the Steinbach Arts Council and the Steinbach Food Bank.
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.
