Yesterday the Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission announced they'll be holding an election beginning next month to fill four board of directors roles.

They're six candidates vying for the four seats in; Greg Brkich of Bladworth, Brett Halstead of Nokomis, Scott Hepworth of Assiniboia, Allen Kuhlmann of Vanguard, Jake Leguee of Weyburn, and Robert Stone of Davidson.

"I think that shows the interest in people wanting to serve as a director capacity and it's very exciting," Blair Goldade, the new Executive Director of Sask Wheat, said.

Ballots will be mailed out to registered wheat producers in October with the election opening on October 14 and closing on November 29 at 4 p.m.

The results from the election will be shared in early December and the four electees will assume their new roles on January 10, 2022, at Sask Wheat's Annual General Meeting.
