In a decision that had been rumoured for weeks, Alanna Koch, Deputy Minister to the Premier of Saskatchewan, has officially announced her intention to run for the leadership of the Saskatchewan Party.

Koch highlighted how she wants to continue on the track that Brad Wall put the province on, in an interview with Shaun Haney on Monday.

“Brad Wall put this province on the right track, we made sure that we got out of the way of business, science and evidence based decision making gives agriculture and our resource industry an opportunity to grow the economy of the province.”

Koch has served as Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Executive Director of the Western Wheat Growers.
