LETHBRIDGE, AB – Former City Councillor, Rob Miyashiro has won the provincial NDP nomination for Lethbridge-East.

Miyashiro, who served two terms on Lethbridge City Council, has been the long-time Executive Director at the Lethbridge Senior Citizens Organization.

He says he has lots of concerns over how the current government is running the province when it comes to everything from coal mining to health care.

“When I decided to put my name forward to challenge Jason Kenney’s UCP, I had health care top-of-mind,” says Miyashiro. “For the seniors I represent through my work, for the new families that have come to call Lethbridge home, and for everyone in between. We cannot grow our community and secure our economic future without real access to quality health care.”

Miyashiro says we have also seen serious delays for critical healthcare lab work and have seen major concerns emerge with EMS consolidation.

The former City Councillor also committed on Monday to putting forward ideas to grow the economy and build “desperately needed” infrastructure and to protect natural areas and critical headwaters for generations to come.

Miyashiro will have plenty of time to campaign. The next Alberta election isn’t scheduled to happen until May of 2023.

Lethrbidge-East is currently represented by the UCP’s Nathan Neudorf.
