Why did you decide to run in the 2010 Winnipeg election?
I've had the privilege of serving as the city councillor for the St. Vital ward since 2000. I grew up in St. Vital, and have called it home my entire life. My wife and I are proud to be raising our children here. St. Vital and its people are near and dear to me - and there is no better way to affect change than by serving in public office. I have a list of specific projects I want to complete this term in St. Vital.
What experience will you bring to complement your role as councillor?
I now have ten years experience as the city councillor for this ward, and previous experience as an area school trustee before that. In my role as councillor, I have been entrusted with the chairmanship of the Protection and Community Services committee and most recently the Planning, Property and Development committee, which has afforded me a very hands on experience with countless numbers of major city issues. I serve as Acting Deputy Mayor, giving me the opportunity to serve as an ambassador for the city for many special events. I am also a lawyer, and have always been very involved in my community. I have spent years building strong relationships within the community, and together we've been able to do a lot of good work here in St. Vital.
What are the major issues you would like to stand for and why did you choose these issues?
The main issues for me have been and continue to be public safety, infrastructure and community improvement. We need safe, thriving neighbourhoods in which to raise our families.
Is there anything in particular you would like to change in our city? In your ward?
I would like to see a decrease in crime in the city as a whole, as well as in my ward. Being a father of young children, it's especially important to me that we raise our children in a safe environment.
Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?
The last ten years as the councillor for St. Vital have been the best ten years of my professional life, and if again given the opportunity, it will be my pleasure to continue to serve the people of St. Vital and the city of Winnipeg
