Will carry PC Banner in new constituency: Pallister
The Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba is pleased to announce Ron Schuler as the nominated candidate for the next provincial election after securing the party’s nomination in the new constituency of Springfield-Ritchot.
“Ron has been a solid representative for his constituents in St. Paul,” said PC Party Leader Brian Pallister. “His stellar record of public service make him the best choice to represent the new constituency of Springfield-Ritchot. 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.”
Ron Schuler has been a Progressive Conservative MLA since 1999, representing St. Paul since 2011. In addition to his role as an MLA, he currently serves as Minister of Infrastructure. Previously, he was Minister of Crown Services. Prior to his election as an MLA, Ron served as a Trustee with the River East School Division. During his terms as a Trustee, he was Chair of the Education and Policy Committee and, in his final term, as Chair of the Board. In addition, he also was a small business owner and community volunteer.
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.
