1. Why did you decide to run in the 2010 Winnipeg election?
I decided to run in the 2010 civic election because I believe people need to be more directly connected to city hall. What do I mean by this statement? I mean that I am running so that people will have someone at city hall who will respond to the concerns of citizens in their ward and have a vision for the greater good of all citizens.
2. What experience will you bring to complement your role as councillor?
I bring a varied and extensive people background to my role as city councilor. I have worked in my own community as president of the Iraqi Community Centre and know first hand the difficulties many people face here in the city. My experience as a businessman has allowed me to hear the concerns of many in our ward who are striving to improve services for our citizens. Winnipeg is a diverse city and I believe I have the ability to to talk and listen to a wide range of people in and out of my ward to make Winnipeg a better city. At the end of the day civic government is all about people and improving their lives as well as responding to their concerns.
3. What are the major issues you would like to stand for and why did you choose these issues?
There are many issues our city faces: Criminal activity by gangs, such as drug dealing and car theft, and the problem of poverty in our city. Their is a need to improve housing for many and the current level of people using food banks needs to be addressed. I choose these problems because they are issues that effect the quality of life of all citizens and all people deserve to live with dignity and respect.
The other issue is the need to continue to upgrade our city streets and sidewalks. Some of the streets and roads in Charleswood have not been repaired in many years. And finally, The issue of fair taxation needs to be addressed.
4. Is there anything in particular you would like to change in our city? In your ward?
I want to show I am an active and open city councilor.
I want to hear from citizens their issues and concerns by meeting with them in a town hall setting or even smaller venues on a regular basis.
I want to work at reducing taxes not increasing them. We can do this by making the delivery of present services more efficiently.
I want to work to make Winnipeg a safe city for all citizens and to make Winnipeg a proud city; we have accomplished much in the past ten years and we can do more to make Winnipeg a prosperous and vigorous modern 21st century city
