Floyd Buhler has been nominated to carry the Liberal banner in the Arthur-Virden byelection this month.

The Kenton, MB resident is currently a safety advisor with the Manitoba Heavy Construction Association.

If elected, Buhler said he hopes to be a strong voice in the legislature for Arthur-Virden.

"I think that’s the key that’s been missing for the last 20 years, ever since the inception of the Arthur-Virden riding," Buhler said. "Instead of putting a new back bencher into the legislature I think we should put someone that can actually speak for the region and bring local issues right to the legislature."

Premier Greg Selinger called the byelection last month after incumbent Larry Maguire resigned to run for the federal Conservations in the Brandon-Souris byelection. Maguire represented the area since 1999.

The constituency includes Virden, Elkhorn, Oak Lake, Hartney, Deloraine, Melita, Reston and Boissevain. Tories have held the seat since the constituency was created in 1989.
