1. Why did you decide to run in the 2010 Winnipeg election?
Well I decided to run in this year’s City Election because my mother told me, "If you don’t like the way things are done, then do it yourself!" So I am listening to her words from the past. I am not happy with the way things have been done in my community and I believe that I can make a difference for the better. I know that it is hard work but I am not afraid. I am up to the challenge.
2. What experience will you bring to complement your role as councillor?
I have worked in the Insurance Industry for over 25 years I understand people’s concerns when it comes to replacement cost values of their homes, the difference between a tax assessment value and a rebuilding value. I understand the effects of break and enter thefts and vandalism and how this can affect families, from feeling safe in their home and their neighbourhood.
3. What are the major issues you would like to stand for and why did you choose these issues?
The effect of the Chief Peguis Trail Expansion, how this financial cost of over $110 million will burden taxpayers and their families for decades. How will this affect the safety of our children, pedestrians and drivers.
We need to focus on increased Neighbourhood Watch, Citizens for Crime Awareness Programs, Block Parents Programs and Anti-Graffiti Groups. We as a community need to work together with our Winnipeg Police Services in our area to make a difference.
We need to review the Police patrols that are assigned to North Kildonan in order to ensure that services are there to keep our community safe and assistance is available in time of n complete the Northeast Pioneers Greenway path, so people of the community can enjoy the green space, while chatting with a friend on a walk, jogging or riding their bike with children in tow.
We need to develop Harbour View and Kilcona Park to make it a viable space. We should look to create a recreational space to celebrate reunions, have a family picnic, celebrate a birthday or just share a day in the sun with family or friends
Bring small business to our community to keep us going and vital part of the city.
4. Is there anything in particular you would like to change in our city? In your ward?
I would like to help and encourage the people of Winnipeg, to realize the wonderful treasures we offer in our Great City. From our beautiful parks and trails, too many of our theatre and entertainment facilities, such as the Art Gallery or Pantages Playhouse or the Fringe Festival, or encourage families to see a Hockey or Baseball game, just to name a few ideas. We are made up of diverse people and cultures. Each bringing their own expression of beliefs, cuisine, heritage, dance, music and this can be celebrated in our city. You just have to explore.
5. Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?
I like to consider myself as the tortoise from the story of “The tortoise and the hare(s).” I may have been slow to start at the starting line but I will work hard, consider the pros and cons and finish the race. I do this with passion.
