Mr. Terry Smith, an Eatonia area farmer and Melville businessman has been nominated as the Progressive Conservative candidate in the Kindersley constituency for the April 4th Provincial Election.
Mr. Smith’s family has farmed in the Eatonia area for over 100 years. Mr Smith and his son are still farming six quarters to this day. Terry has served local governments across the province. He has been a Councillor and Reeve in the RM of Newcomb and on the Eatonia Hospital Board. He has served on the Melville School Board and given time to the community as an Air Cadet parent volunteer.
Terry has been a successful businessman in several communities owning a Robin’s Donuts franchise in Yorkton, a Shell gas station and restaurant in Melville. He is currently developing a recreation property and campground in the Qu’Appelle Valley.
Mr. Smith has two grown children, a daughter and a son. He has sold his businesses and now has the time to serve the voters of Kindersley constituency. Terry’s house on the farm 22 miles south of Kindersley has always been home.
PC Party Leader, Rick Swenson, is “pleased to have Terry Smith come back to the PC Team. He is an experienced farmer, businessman and community leader. Kindersley deserves an MLA who will represent the interests of local people, not the Premier’s big business friends in Regina and elsewhere.”
Mr. Smith said he is running in Kindersley because voters need a free enterprise choice in this election who believes in accountability and a vision for future generations. That choice is the Progressive Conservative Party.
Mr. Smith said, “I came home from a winter vacation and I didn’t want to believe what was going on in Saskatchewan. The deficit was up to $427 million, another $700 million was borrowed for down payments on leased schools, hospitals and a Regina bypass that isn’t a bypass. The Premier has been forced to ask the Provincial Auditor to investigate questionable land purchases at the Global Transportation Hub which was recommended to cabinet by Kindersley MLA Bill Boyd and signed off on by Brad Wall.” (O.C. attached)
Smith said “The people need a Progressive Conservative opposition to get to the bottom of this mismanagement. I am not afraid to run against Bill Boyd and ask these questions on behalf of taxpayers.
