Brant Field - River Heights - Fort Garry
What got you into politics?
I’ve always been a DIYer, I like to get involved, solve problems, and make things better. In watching how Winnipeg has been run in the last 10-12 years I feel that it is stuck in a rut. Moving along but never really progressing, the problems of 2010 are the same problems that we have in 2022. I want to bring my skills to bear to push Winnipeg out of this rut and get it back into the fast lane.
What experience will you bring to compliment your role as (Mayor / Councillor / School Trustee)?
I’ve had a several different careers and volunteered at a number of places but they all have a connection, problem solving and people. I’m a lawyer by training, I’ve worked at a not-for-profit poverty law clinic and I’ve worked in a traditional law practice. I’ve worked at an engineering firm and I’ve worked in construction project management and owner advocacy. I’ve volunteered as a ski patroller and I’ve volunteered with Canadian Adaptive Skiing. These careers and volunteer experiences have have given me the ability to identify the core issue of a problem and to solve it in the most effective and reasonable way given constraints imposed by outside factors. These same careers and volunteer experiences have also given me the insight to know that most people want the same things and have the same goals, we just come at it from different directions. The trick is in helping people recognize this and getting them to work towards the common goal.
What are some issues that you would like to stand for in your role as (Mayor / Councillor / School Trustee), and why are these issues important to you?
City Council is at its core a board of directors that is tasked with making decisions that are in the best interest of the residents of each ward and of the City as a whole while guiding by a mission statement. The following priorities are my mission statement and will guide my decision making process in Council. These priorities have been developed after speaking to hundreds of community members and I feel that they reflect as closely as is possible the views and wishes of River Heights – Fort Garry
- Property Crime – This effects every section of the ward and has been a major concern of the vast majority of people.
- Trees and Rivers- Winnipeg is know for its trees and rivers and we need to protect and enhance them for future resident
- Traffic Flow – We need improve the way traffic heading to southern communities transits RH-FG
- Crumbling Streets – We need to maintain what we have, there must be a budget in place that can sustain our roads in the long term
- Taxes – This means keeping taxes as low as possible while still effectively functioning as a City
Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?
So often people criticise government decision making. I feel that this is because the decision makers don’t share all the information and factors that went into that decision. Nothing is decided in a vacuum and there are always competing interests in play. I will always explain my decision making process to residents. It’s important to me that even though somebody may not agree with the outcome they can see the logic in how I reached it. It’s similar to a math problem in school, its just as important to show your work as it is to get the correct answer.
It is very important for me to engage with all community members to ensure that their voice is heard. I have been knocking on doors for 6 weeks now and have spoken to 1000’s of residents. There are 20000 doors and 35000 voters in RH-FG, I wont’t be able to speak to all of you but I am trying. If you see my flyer at your door its very likely I placed it there and must have missed you. Please reach out to me with your questions and concerns. Brant.
