Moose Jaw Wakamow MLA Greg Lawrence not seeking re-election
Moose Jaw Wakamow MLA Greg Lawrence announced on Tuesday that he will not be seeking re-election for the 2024 provincial election. Lawrence has been the MLA for Moose Jaw Wakamow since 2011 and was re-elected in 2016 and 2020. He has recently been recovering after a motorcycle accident on the Manitoba Expressway near Highway 1 in early August. “I had planned to run again, but after sustaining serious injuries in a motorcycle accident last month, my recovery has been more challenging than I expected,” Lawrence said in a press release. “I need to focus on my health and rehabilitation and that’s why I have decided not to seek re-election.” Lawrence added that his constituency office will remain open and he will continue to service the people of Moose Jaw Wakamow while recovering from the accident. A nomination meeting will be held in the coming months, according to the Saskatchewan Party, to select a candidate for Moose Jaw Wakamow. Megan Patterson has already announced her intentions to seek the nomination. The next provincial election is slated for Oct. 28, 2024.
