Swift Current’s Jeremy Patzer has secured the Conservative Party’s nomination to run in the riding of Cypress Hills-Grasslands during the fall federal election after weekend voting by party members.
The huge southwest Saskatchewan constituency extends from Kindersley to the Montana border and from the Alberta boundary to just west of Moose Jaw.
A six-candidate race began this spring after long-serving MP David Anderson announced he would retire from politics this year.
Patzer finished first when votes were counted on Saturday night in Swift Current, though no vote totals were released. Alberta Newsgroup reporters were told about two-thirds of eligible party members cast ballots.
Patzer has been a riding association board member for the past four years and a local community volunteer Swift Current, where he moved 10 years ago from Frontier.
Other candidates were: Kyle Bennett, of Shaunavon; Sean Checkley, of Fox Valley; Norman Nordgulenm of Assinibioa; Megz Reynolds, of Kyle; and Kerry Williamson, of Pambrun.
Flood maps for Maple Creek
Researchers from the universities of Saskatchewan and Regina will be in Maple Creek on June 25 to discuss with residents the 2010 flood that sweep into the town and region.
The evening event that includes a light supper will gather information for a study of the high water event that will influence future flood planning. The first 25 registrants will receive a gift card. Required registration can be handled by phoning researcher Angela Culham at 306-585-4445.
