So I heard that John McGettigan was running for the Saskatchewan Party nomination in Saskatoon Stonebridge Dakota. Â I then found this speech from a couple of years ago he gave at a Teacherâ€™s Rally where he questioned the Brad Wall lead Saskatchewan Party governments intelligence, passion for education, and commitment to our children.
Now he wants to be a part of the same government he bashed from the front of the legislature. Â Itâ€™s been a long time since I have been involved in partisan politics but I donâ€™t think it works like that.
Of course it actually gets weirder with this odd campaign announcement on Facebook where he seems to think he is running to be a cabinet minister.
So if he isnâ€™t named to cabinet (and given the perks to the position) is he going to quit? Â Who makes those kinds of declarations (or doesnâ€™t at least take away his campaign managers computer) as they announce their nomination?
Okay, so the reason the Sask Party has â€œmessed upâ€ education is that they donâ€™t have the information needed to fix it? Â The bureaucrats, the meetings with the unions, the work with the Saskatchewan Teacherâ€™s Federation, meetings with John McGettigan himself â€¦ that isnâ€™t getting them the information they need? Â So only McGettigan himself once elected and presumably named as Minister of Education will then share this information on how to fix education in this province.
Itâ€™s so weird. Â It is like he is running to be education minister and that is it which even if you have no idea how the world works, you have to know our system doesnâ€™t work like that.
In case you are wondering if that is all. Â No. Â There was this statement by his campaign manager.
Again, this man needs to have his computer taken away from him. Â This may be the most disastrous start to any nomination campaign that I have ever seen.
