Rankin Inlet South – Nunavut Election 2017 candidate profiles

Rankin Inlet South is headed for another showdown at the polls between incumbent Alexander Sammurtok and challenger Lorne Kusugak. Kusugak did not submit a candidate profile. 

Alexander Sammurtok

Reason for running:

I was asked to run again for MLA by many of my constituents and also by my family. I enjoy representing my community and being their voice.

Some of the things I am focusing on are:

- Continue to fight to keep the elders in Nunavut by getting us a long-term care facility.

- Education and training for Nunavummiut (including mine training and employment with a request for a training centre.

- Mental health support and facility.

- Housing issues.
- Small business support and municipal infrastructure.
