Another two provincial cabinet ministers are getting behind Corner Brook businessman Frank Coleman in his campaign to become the next Progressive Conservative leader.
Justice Minister Darin King and Education Minister Clyde Jackman announced their support Wednesday via press release.
“Darin and Clyde have worked in unison to promote the interests of the people of the Burin Peninsula and I applaud what they have accomplished for that area of the province,” Coleman stated. “They have also demonstrated solid leadership in their cabinet positions, and I welcome their support.”
King and Jackman said they like what they have heard Coleman say about the importance of securing the future for rural communities.
To date, six cabinet ministers have endorsed Coleman for the leadership. In addition to King and Jackman, those supporting Coleman are Steve Kent, Charlene Johnson, Derrick Dalley and Paul Davis.
