1. Why did you decide to run in the 2010 Winnipeg election?
I am a lifelong resident of Elmwood/East Kildonan and I see the need for a new vision and direction for our area. This ward is full of great people who deserve to have opportunities and strong leadership who will work for everyone. Over the years I have seen our neighbourhood lose important community resources such as Kelvin Community Centre and Youth for Christ and we face losing more if we don’t start having our voices heard at city hall right now. I am passionate, motivated and determined and I don’t want to risk this great community being ignored any longer and that is why I have put my name forward to run.
2. What experience will you bring to complement your role as councillor?
I have been an activist for people and important issues since I was just a child and as I’ve grown older I have learned that we must stand together as a community to create positive change-my strength is bringing people together. I studied communications/journalism because I wanted to advocate for the rights of all people and our environment and bring about awareness and concern. I am an award winning journalist/writer/emcee and activist who always stands up for what is right. I feel my experience working well with everyone and my values and dedication will help me in my leadership. My love for this neighbourhood and my relationship with the people in this community will guide me at city hall.
3. What are the major issues you would like to stand for and why did you choose these issues?
The issues that top my list are Crime/Safety, Opportunities for Youth and Seniors, Infrastructure, Green Initiatives, Transportation, Strong Leadership and Transparency/Accountability at City Hall. I chose these issues because as a resident that is what I feel needs to be addressed, but most importantly—this is what the citizens of Elmwood/East Kildonan want.
4. Is there anything in particular you would like to change in our city? In your ward?
I want to see a fair and just city where everyone has the opportunities to be successful, feel safe and be proud of their city.
5. Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?
I want to work for the people of this neighbourhood and once elected I promise to dedicate my life to being a strong leader who is always accountable to the citizens of this ward.
