Questionnaire Response

Why did you decide to run in the 2014 Winnipeg Civic Election?

My vision is to see Winnipeg become an ever more vibrant and healthy place for people and business to thrive: a city where people connect with one another and feel they belong.
There is much more that needs to be done to address our transportation & infrastructure needs as well as strengthen neigbhourhood planning, recreational facilities, sustainability and green space. I believe my energy, experience and vision will help support the new council and our community to move our city forward.

What experience will you bring to compliment your role as Councillor?

My background as a community health nurse and a mother of three compliments my 16 years of experience as an active, vocal and hardworking member of City Council.

What are some issues that you would like to stand for in your role as Councillor, and why are these issues important to you?

I am an avid supporter of improving public transit, active transportation and the pedestrian environment. I will continue to champion neighbourhood planning to help guide new development while protectiong the character of our older neighbourhoods. I also believe we must work with other partners to tackle the issue the lack of affordable rental accommodation and the issue of homelessness in our city. Downtown revitalization including securing a downtown grocery story and continued growth of our downtown residential population is essential for the health of the city as a whole. I have been a strong advocate for ethical and accountable government and will continue to work for changes to our current system to ensure more openness and to restore public trust. I believe we must do more to address climate change at the local level and steward our greenspace and environment.

What is one thing in particular that you appreciate about the ward you wish to represent?

Fort Rouge - East Fort Garry is blessed with active and engaged residents and a strong volunteer spirit. We also have a gorgeous tree canopy and a valuable array of heritage buildings and beautiful public spaces.
