Will carry PC Banner in new constituency: Pallister
The Progressive Conservative Party of Manitoba is pleased to announce Eileen Clarke as the nominated candidate for the next provincial election after securing the party’s nomination in the redrawn constituency of Agassiz.
“Eileen has been a tremendous representative for her constituents in Agassiz,” said PC Party Leader Brian Pallister. “Her record of public service makes her the best choice to represent the new constituency of Agassiz. I look forward to working with her as we build a winning team that will continue to earn the trust of Manitobans in the next provincial election.”
Eileen Clarke has been the Progressive Conservative MLA for Agassiz since 2016. In addition to her role as an MLA, she currently serves as Minister of Indigenous and Northern Relations. Prior to her election as an MLA, Eileen was a business owner and municipal official, serving as Mayor of Gladstone and Vice-president of the Association of Manitoba Municipalities.
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.
