Kim was first elected to the legislature in October 1986, and was re-elected in 1991, 1995, 1999, 2003 and 2007. During the 1980′s, Kim played a key role in the fight to prevent the privatization of SaskEnergy. Later, in the NDP government of former Premier Lorne Calvert, he served as Minister of Labour and Minister of Gaming. Most recently, Kim has served as Official Opposition Critic for STC.
On January 28th, 2010, Kim announced that he will not be seeking re-election to the legislature in the November 2011 election.
Over the years, Kim has earned a reputation as a decent, modest, principled individual, someone who will speak up for the rights of working families in Regina Coronation Park. This dinner is a chance to pay tribute to his 25 years of public service! Regina Coronation Park New Democrats look forward to seeing you there!
