The third and final candidate for the nomination of the Saskatchewan Party has come forward.
Francis Kreiser announced that he will be seeking the nomination of the Saskatchewan Party, after last month’s sudden resignation by former Lloydminster MLA Tim McMillan.
Kreiser, who previously ran for the nomination in 2007, placing second to McMillan, is back at it again, this time looking for that coveted top spot.
During an interview with the Lloydminster Source, Kreiser said his roots in the party date back to the first time the party contested a byelection.
“I was the first candidate to run in a byelection under the Saskatchewan Party name, so byelections aren’t new to me. I also ran for the nomination in 2007, when Tim McMillan was elected, I came second,” he said.
Kreiser admitted that the economy is doing well in Lloydminster, but he says that it could be doing better.
“While the economy is doing well, we have some major problems here in Saskatchewan,” he said.
“Most people will identify with them. We have issues with the health-care system here in Lloydminster. We have kind of a revolving door of doctors who are coming in constantly, which leads to patients falling through the cracks.
