FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SWIFT CURRENT, SK – David Anderson, long-time Member of Parliament for Cypress Hills-Grasslands, has announced that he will not be running in the 2019 election. He released the following statement:
“It has been an honour to serve the people of southwest Saskatchewan and I know I will miss doing so in the future. However, the time has come to step down and so I am announcing that I will not be a candidate in the upcoming election.
“I want to thank the people of Cypress Hills-Grasslands for your incredible and unwavering support. You are the best people in the world and it has been a great privilege to represent you.
“To those who have worked with me within the Constituency all these years – you make things work behind the scenes and get little attention. Thank you!
“I am grateful for my exceptional staff – They worked with me and served you. They have all been with me for years, some over 10 years and are fellow workers and friends. Many of you have seen their incredible capacity and ability to do their jobs as they addressed your issues and got answers for you. They are the reason our office has been recognized as one of the best. They have made my job so much easier and I thank Anita, Anna Marie, Tristan and Joycelin.
“I thank Sheila, my love and my conscience. She has sacrificed more than any of you know. We look forward to spending much more time together.
“I thank God, who I know is real and active, for giving me this opportunity.
“It is my expectation that Andrew Scheer and his caucus will form the next government of Canada and I give them my support and best wishes.”
