***This is the second of a five part series on all the candidates running for leader of the Saskatchewan Party and Premiership of the province.
Sask. Party leadership candidate Ken Cheveldayoff, said he clocks about 18-hour days, and has done so since he announced his intention to run for the top political position in Saskatchewan.
Cheveldayoff is one of five candidates vying for the leadership since Brad Wall announced his intention to step down last August.
Cheveldayoff knows what it takes to become the next Premier of Saskatchewan.
“I grew up in Blaine Lake and have a rural and agriculture background,” he said.
“My dad farmed, and my mom was a teacher, I lived in rural Saskatchewan for the first 18 years of my life, now I have a strong urban seat, a strong seat for the Saskatchewan Party and ten years of elected experience,” Cheveldayoff said.
That ten years of elected experience includes the portfolios of the Crown Investment Corporation, Metis and First Nations relations, environment and parks as well as sport, recreation and culture
Cheveldayoff noted his greatest challenge is for the Saskatchewan Party to get the urban vote.
