Father we give you praise. We thank you for the life of service that you have established in Hugh Nerlien. You have placed him in a position to have an impact, not just for Kelvington -Wadena, but for greater governance in Saskatchewan and in other jurisdictions. As you prepare the path, the roles and the opportunities for him would you also prepare his heart, his experiences, and his commitment to the work of representation and governance that you desire him to provide. Amen.
Hugh Nerlien was elected MLA for Kelvington-Wadena Constituency in 2016 and again in 2020. Hugh was born in Kelvington and grew up on the family farm and in small business in the Greenwater Lake area of Saskatchewan. His education includes administration, Canadian securities, certified financial planning, and lifelong learning in oil and gas, insurance, and banking. After working in Northern Manitoba and Alberta for over 30 years, he and his wife bought a business in Porcupine Plain to be closer to family and friends. Hugh recently sold his business in Porcupine Plain and turned his attention to representing the constituents of Kelvington-Wadena. Hugh has volunteered extensively throughout his life, including as a former President of the Canadian Crime Stoppers Association, Porcupine Plain Economic Development Committee, and board member for Porcupine Credit Union Limited.
