Wall selects Ottenbreit as new Minister of Rural and Remote Health
Premier Brad Wall today appointed Greg Ottenbreit to be the new Minister of Rural and Remote Health. He replaces Tim McMillan who stepped down from the position last week.
Ottenbreit was first elected MLA for Yorkton in 2007 and was re-elected in 2011. He is entering cabinet for the first time.
“Greg Ottenbreit has been a strong member of our caucus, serving in a number of different capacities over the past seven years, and I know he will be a strong member of our cabinet,” Wall said. “This portfolio is about listening to and understanding the concerns of rural communities, patients and health care providers. I know Greg will be a tireless worker when it comes to meeting with those individuals and bringing their health care concerns to the cabinet table.”
Ottenbreit has been serving as Government Whip. Herb Cox takes over from Ottenbreit as Government Whip.
