1. Why did you decide to run in the 2010 Winnipeg election?
As a girl who grew up in this neighbourhood and now as a Mom of a girl who is currently growing up in this neighbourhood, I have a vested interest in making sure that our city and the ward of Mynarski in particular are properly represented. It is important to me that we send someone who is not merely educated and qualified, but someone who understands the needs and concerns of the citizens of this ward first hand.
2. What experience will you bring to complement your role as councillor?
I will bring my experience of having grown up and lived here in addition to my education at McGill University and University of British Columbia. Further to that, I bring more than 15 years experience in negotiating between goverment agencies, universities and large and small companies. I also will continue to maintain and grow my large network of associates that include friends, neighbours, community leaders and business leaders throughout North America.
3. What are the major issues you would like to stand for and why did you choose these issues?
The single biggest issue of this election according to the residents, community groups and business owners in the ward of Mynarski is crime. I intend to continue working toward getting a cop on every corner to get control of the petty crime that is rampant in this city.
Secondly, over the years our business districts have suffered and declined to a terrible state of affairs. No one can deny this. This absolutely has to change. Our community is filled with many young families and those families want to shop local and not always have to drive away to some other area to find shops, services and entertainment.
The third priority and this is very important to all of us living here in Mynarski, not just other parts of Winnipeg, is livable neighbourhoods.
A neighbourhood should be pleasant and relaxing, not nervewracking, ill kept or dangerous. A good city councillor should always be aware of the condition of the ward and everything in it. Including, the state of the playgrounds and roads and infrastructure. A good city councillor must go to city hall and fight for the good of the ward as well as the city.
4. Is there anything in particular you would like to change in our city? In your ward?
I would like to change the reputation of our city and that of Mynarski. It hurts my feelings everytime I hear Winnipeg and Mynarski, The North End especially, described with any of these words; "poverty ridden"; "warzone"; "murder city".
This makes people think twice before visiting here, living here, investing here and certainly before moving here. We have to get to work on fixing that.
5. Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?
As much work as this election is, it has been the most fun I have ever had. I can't say enough about what a priviledge it is to be meeting so many different people and hearing so many incredible stories. I have had so many wonderful compliments that I am often overwhelmed. Thanks to everyone who has talked to me and helped me so far
