Will carry PC Banner in new constituency: Pallister
The Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba is pleased to announce Shannon Martin as the nominated candidate for the next provincial election after securing the party’s nomination in the new constituency of McPhillips.
“Shannon has been a tremendous representative for his constituents in Morris,” said PC Party Leader Brian Pallister. “His record of public service makes him the best choice to represent the new constituency of McPhillips. 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.”
Shannon has been the Progressive Conservative MLA for Morris since the 2014 byelection and was then re-elected in the 2016 general election. In addition to his role as an MLA, he currently serves as Deputy Whip, as a member of the Priorities & Planning Committee of Cabinet, and co-chair of the Manitoba Red Tape Reduction Task Force. Prior to his election as an MLA, Shannon worked in leadership roles with a non-profit employment agency and a non-profit organization representing and advocating for small business.
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.
