Will carry PC Banner in new constituency: Pallister
The Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba is pleased to announce Scott Fielding as the nominated candidate for the next provincial election after securing the party’s nomination in the new constituency of Kirkfield Park.
“Scott has been a great representative for his constituents in Kirkfield Park,” said PC Party Leader Brian Pallister. “His record of public service makes him the best choice to represent the new constituency of Kirkfield Park. 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.”
Scott Fielding has been the Progressive Conservative MLA for Kirkfield Park since 2016. In addition to his role as an MLA, he currently serves as Minister of Finance, and Minister responsible for the civil service. Previously, Scott was the Minister of Families. Prior to his role as an MLA, Scott had an extensive career as a small business owner and with the public service as councillor for the City of Winnipeg, serving as chair of the Finance Committee and the Winnipeg Police Board. Born and raised in Winnipeg, Scott graduated from the University of Manitoba with an Advanced Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics and Political Studies. Scott and his wife Michelle have 3 children: daughters Paige and Brynn, and son Beck.
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.
