Questionnaire Response

Gary Lenko - River Heights - Fort Garry

What got you into politics?

I have always been interested in community issues and first decided to run in the 2018 election. I am a problem solver and I saw the need for better representation and communication. The major issues facing our city in 2018 – poverty, homelessness, crime, and core infrastructure have not been managed in a proactive manner that gets results. Please visit votegarylenko.com

As a business owner, I have good communication, management and planning skills.

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?

I would like to stand for getting everyone working together to solve the problems we need to solve to make our city better for everyone.

Safety & policing implement problem-oriented policing, focus on underlying causes of crime, develop strategies to solve those problems, evaluate implemented solutions, take a proactive approach to address issues before crimes occur, ongoing training for police officers to strengthen their problem-solving skills, identify crime hot-spots and ensure strong police presence to deter crime and apprehend offenders, engage residents, businesses/community groups and schools to help identify & report problems and work together to solve them.

Homelessness and poverty – increase city funding and secure funding for affordable housing directly from the federal government through its array of affordable housing programs. Work with the province that must assume a greater responsibility for eliminating poverty than it has in the past. Research what other municipalities are doing and implement programs that are working

Transit safety & increase ridership – Right now we need to implement better overall route scheduling, new feeder routes, more buses, a frequent service network. Fund and maintain our core-transit service and implement proactive measures to ensure safety for drivers and passengers.
