Questionnaire Response

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

After living in Winnipeg for the past 10 years, and managing a large City of Winnipeg department, I feel I have more to offer as a Councillor which will help shape Winnipeg's future as there is always room for improvement and I want to make sure all my residents voices are heard.

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

With over 21 years of experience in municipal government and managing the largest mosquito control program in Canada, I feel I have more to offer as that experience from inside government gives me the edge of having a working knowledge of how a city needs to grow and function. Couple this with being a small business owner, I feel It provides the voters with a wealth of knowledge that can be effectively used to work with all levels of government and civic administration to improve Winnipeg.

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

Widen Pembina Underpass - To widen the Pembina Underpass to three (3) lanes going north no matter what the end result of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) becomes; Waverly Traffic - To investigate the cost of an overpass or underpass at the Waverley St rail road tracks; Widen Kenaston - To widen Kenaston to three (3) lanes in both directions from Taylor Ave to Academy Road; Expansion of Bus Rapid Transit - To re-assess the BRT route and model to serve all residents of the City of Winnipeg; Environmental Improvements - Increase the funding of the protection, monitoring and control of local and invasive species and diseases that are affecting the overall urban forest in Winnipeg; and, Improve Emergency Access - To review the effect of the traffic circle installations that may be causing issues for Fire, Police and Ambulance services in getting to locations within our Ward.

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

The sense of community that can be found in pockets throughout but collectively can be strengthened and become a model for the rest of Winnipeg.

Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?

I am running a campaign that is on a small budget as a sign of no ties to political parties. I am relying on my website, signage and digital printouts for voters to consider me as their new Councillor.
