Moose Jaw Wakamow MLA Greg Lawrence
Lawrence, MLA for Moose Jaw Wakamow, has announced his intent to run again to represent the riding in the Saskatchewan Legislature.
"The Sask. Party does what it says it's going to do," he said. "I really want to be a part of that … we say a lot that there's more work to be done, and I truly believe that. I, hopefully, am the guy to get that work done."
Lawrence told the Times-Herald he believes Moose Jaw is "an amazing city," and that undoubtedly the greatest accomplishment since he was elected has been the new regional hospital.
"There isn't a whole bunch of news that's bigger than that," he said.
A more personal honour for Lawrence was his appointment to legislative secretary for foster care with the Ministry of Social Services, he said.
"Being a foster parent myself, that was really close to my heart," said Lawrence. "I had a really good time talking with folks across the province on that front, and I'm looking forward to continuing in that role as long as the premier and minister have faith in me to do that work."
Overall, though, he said the decision to run again is "about making the province the best place for people to work, live and play."
"It's close to my heart that my kids don't have to leave the province. We didn't buy them suitcases when they graduated," said Lawrence. "They live right here in Saskatchewan."
