MHA Hutchings Thanks Constituents and Supporters,

Announces He Will Not Seek Re-election


St. John’s, NL (March 28. 2019) – Keith Hutchings, MHA for Ferryland, announced today that, “After significant consideration, I have decided not to seek re-election as the Progressive Conservative MHA for Ferryland District.  It has been a privilege to represent the residents of Ferryland over the past 12 years and work collectively on your behalf.”


“I also want to recognize and show my appreciation for the tremendous work of the Ferryland PC Association and the many volunteers who assisted in our campaign teams over the past elections and supported me and played a key role in our success.  I am forever grateful for your unwavering support.”


“Over the years, I have had tremendous staff to support me and contribute to our success, in particular Darlene Dunne (former constituency assistant /executive assistant) and Joan Power (my current constituency assistant). These amazing people have worked tirelessly on a daily basis to resolve many matters, always in a professional manner.


“Finally, I want to acknowledge my wife, Lynn, for her support and understanding during my time in public life.  It is never a spouse or partner in public life; it is the family unit. As well to our children, Eric and Jane, for your support, understanding, contribution and advice through the past years: as always invaluable.”


“Once again, thank you to the residents of Ferryland District for your confidence in me over the past years, and I look forward to fulfilling my term as your MHA.”


Hutchings said, “The PC Party has been rejuvenated under the leadership of Ches Crosbie and he is now laying out a clear alternative path to the people of the province, supported by exceptional candidates that will form his team leading into the next Provincial election. I have every confidence that he is the best person to run our province, and put Newfoundland and Labrador on the path to growth.”
