Rankin Inlet South is headed for another showdown at the polls between incumbent Alexander Sammurtok and challenger Lorne Kusugak. Kusugak did not submit a candidate profile.
Reason for running:
I was asked to run again for MLA by many of my constituents and also by my family. I enjoy representing my community and being their voice.
Some of the things I am focusing on are:
– Continue to fight to keep the elders in Nunavut by getting us a long-term care facility.
– Education and training for Nunavummiut (including mine training and employment with a request for a training centre.
– Mental health support and facility.
– Housing issues.
– Small business support and municipal infrastructure.
