According to a release, Groff grew up in small-town Saskatchewan and has made Saskatoon his home for the past 35 years. He and his wife Valarie have two grown married daughters and two grandchildren who also live in Saskatoon, according to a release.
“I want to extend my thanks to the Saskatoon Meewasin membership for their strong support,” Groff said in the release. “I’m working hard to ensure that the Saskatchewan Party wins this byelection, and that I have the honour of representing the residents of Meewasin.”
Groff said his past experience will be a strong asset in his campaign. He studied at the Saskatchewan Technical Institute, now known as Saskatchewan Polytechnic, and at the Edwards School of Business at the University of Saskatchewan. Groff had a long business career in the fields of sales, human resources and business finance.
