Why did you decide to run in the 2011 Winnipeg by-election?
I have always believed that we deserve the strongest representation possible, standing up for the real issues facing our families. Our neighbourhoods deserve to be green, safe, healthy and strong. With the problems we face on our major arteries, green spaces, back lanes, in our community police stations and community centers, I felt as though I had the opportunity to make a real difference. If I am elected St. Vital’s next City Councilor, I will put the needs of our neighbourhoods first, and ensure St. Vital is a great place to raise our families.
What experience will you bring to compliment your role as Councillor?
I have a wealth of experience in the private sector, currently I’m the owner of H.K. Enterprises LTD, an international consulting firm based in Winnipeg specializing in e-commerce. I’ve also been a manager at Convergys, and a fundraiser for Canadian Diabetes as well as the United Way. I’ve also been part of the public sector as an operations manager for Statistics Canada.
What are the major issues you would like to stand for and why did you choose these issues?
My three major issues are safety, infrastructure and community centres.
- I want to protect our community safety police stations. They are overworked, understaffed and constantly under the threat of closure, which I will make sure doesn’t happen. They are the first and most important contact when there are security issues in the community. They help to create alliances between St. Vital residents and the police force, and just their presence is enough to make citizens feel more secure in their surroundings.
- Our infrastructure defines how we get around and as a city councillor I would work to make sure our roads stay in a good state and I will lead the process of paving back lanes. People must also be able to move around within St. Vital efficiently. I will push to have Phase II of rapid transit include St. Vital. Synchronizing traffic lights and getting construction crews to work around the clock to finish repairs will help get people to work on time and home quickly.
Is there anything in particular you would like to change in our city? In your ward?
St. Vital is a great place to live but there are some changes I would to see. First, our community has for far been forced to deal with unacceptable infrastructure in the form of unpaved back lanes, run down streets and backed up traffic. I believe I am the best candidate to address these serious problems. It is also important that people living in our ward feel safe. We CAN’T have our community police stations closed. They serve an important function and I will fight to make sure they stay open. I want our ward to have the finest schools, the best programs and the safest neighbourhoods. St. Vital ought to be the example other wards want to follow. If we succeed in making our area stronger, then Winnipeg as a whole will prosper.
Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?
I am asking the people of St. Vital to vote for a strong voice for themselves and their families. We need a strong voice for the true issues facing our community, building better more sustainable roads, paving our back lanes, improving our transit, keeping our community police stations working efficiently, supporting our community centres and growing our green spaces. St. Vital is the best community to live in, and I believe I can give it the strongest voice possible. I hope that on November 26th you vote for a strong voice for a strong community. I ask you to vote for me, Hammad Khan, to be the next City Councilor in St. Vital.
