Voters in Fort Rouge will be electing a new MLA on April 19th.
That’s because Jennifer Howard has announced she will not seek re-election.
Howard, who has held a number of portfolios, was one of the so-called ‘Rebel 5′, who challenged Premier Greg Selinger’s leadership.
She and the others later returned to the fold, however, three others have also decided not to put their names forward again.
Howard says a major factor in her decision is her two young children.
She adds that she’s taken a job in Ottawa.
