Bill Boyd to Retire From Politics

Hot on on the heels of Premier Brad Wall's announcement last week to retire from politics, Kindersley MLA, Bill Boyd is following suit. In a press release issued on Tuesday, Boyd indicates he's stepping down as of September 1.

When Premier Wall announced his retirement, he talked about renewal within the Saskatchewan Party, Boyd said. I have been the MLA for Kindersley for a long time, so my retirement and a new MLA can be part of that renewal. I want to thank the people of Kindersley constituency for the trust they placed in me over the past 26 years by electing me six times. It has been a tremendous honour for me to serve as MLA for this great part of our province.

Boyd was first elected in 1991 as a Progressive Conservative (PC) MLA. He became PC Leader in 1994 and led that party through the 1995 election. In 1997, Boyd was a driving force behind the formation of the Saskatchewan Party, leaving the PCs and giving up his leadership of that party to become a member of the new party.
