Today, Leader of the Official Opposition Nicole Sarauer announced adjustments to the NDP caucus’ critic portfolios. Sarauer noted that very few changes were being made to the team that has spent the last year energized, determined, and focused on fighting for Saskatchewan people and against the Sask. Party’s mismanagement, scandal, and waste.
“This is a highly motivated team that punches well above its weight and our work on behalf of Saskatchewan people doesn’t change just because of some changes in our caucus,” Sarauer said.
Sarauer announced that Ryan Meili is taking over as the critic for the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority, Danielle Chartier is taking on the Status of Women portfolio, and Trent Wotherspoon, who continues as the critic for Youth and Economy, is now responsible for the Jobs file.
In the Legislature, Nicole Rancourt is the new Deputy Whip. That position is being vacated by Carla Beck who taking over as Deputy House Leader from Sarauer. Carla will also become a sitting member of the Public Accounts Committee.
“The hard work, reaching out, and building together does not stop with these changes. In fact, we will only intensify our efforts to push the Sask. Party to reverse their callous cuts, unfair tax hikes, and desperate sell-offs,” Sarauer said. “Our commitment to fight the Sask. Party, hold them to account, and offer a better vision for our province is stronger than ever and I have confidence that our team is too.”
