A Couple Political Notes

Ryan Meili posted a brief message on his Facebook page saying that he will soon be making an announcement about which riding he'll be running in for the 2010 Provincial Election. 

Presumably he'll be running in Saskatoon and that likely means one of the ridings currently held by members of the Saskatchewan Party (Sutherland, Greystone) or depending on whether any current Saskatoon-based NDP MLA's decide to retire or otherwise move on, perhaps one of those ridings will be a possibility as well.

Which leads to my second point.  Kim Trew, longtime MLA for Regina – Coronation Park announced his retirement a few weeks ago and that's kicked off a nomination battle that currently has four announced nominees – Fred Kress, Tamara Harder, Jaime Garcia and Tory McGregor who is easily the most surprising entrant into the race. 

As always, Accidental Deliberations is on the case with the latest news and insights so the only thing I'll add is that Coronation Park happens to be my home riding and though I haven't 100% made up my mind as to who I'll support, I'm definitely leaning towards one of the candidates.  So there will be more on that in the days and weeks to come. 

[Edit: Accidental Deliberations also highlights, via Louis Riel Trail, another pending announcement I missed – 2009 NDP Leadership Candidate, Yens Pedersen.]

    As opposed to leaning towards someone who isn't running? 😉

    “As opposed to leaning *away* someone who is running” like I did in the leadership race. 😉
