Conservatives in the Emerson Riding will select their candidate this fall.

The local PC Association will hold its nomination meeting on November 21 at Altona's Millennium Exhibition Centre.

Association spokes person Rick Martel says this will be the first contested nomination in about 20 years.

Candidates running for the nomination include Cliff Graydon of Woodmore and Larry Tetrault from La Broquerie.

A third candidate is expected to announce his candidacy shortly.

The vacancy was created when MLA Jack Penner announced his intention to retire from politics.
