Jasmine Brar - Pembina Trails - 3
What got you into politics?
I have been an active volunteer in my local community for many years, and believe in implementing change at a grassroots level. Ward 3 has gone through a massive increase of residents moving in, from many different backgrounds and we need to ensure our children and their families are represented by Trustees who understand their concerns. After the encouragement of many local parents, neighbors and friends I have decided to put my name forward and use my experiences in community activism. As a proud immigrant, I want to encourage everyone who is able to participate in our democracy.
What experience will you bring to compliment your role as (Mayor / Councillor / School Trustee)?
As a mother of two children who attend/have attended the public school system and as an immigrant who went through the public school system, I understand the needs and gaps in our system. I have a strong desire to give back to our community because I understand how important it is to implement important change by involving all stakeholders. I have been involved in community activism for many years, I am the current President and founder of the Prairie Point Neighborhood Association, Vice President of the South Winnipeg Community Center, and have served as Co Chair of a Parent Teachers Advisory Board. Over the years I have participated in many boards, committees and advisory bodies from a wide range of topics from funding a community center to women’s groups and immigration and refugee support.
Professionally I am currently an Office Manager with the University of Manitoba and assist in our family business. I have experience in managing large teams and stakeholders to ensure our goals, projects and targets are met.
I believe I can utilize these skill sets to serve the students, parents, staff and teachers of Ward 3.
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?
After speaking to parents and residents I have formulated a plan to solve the issues that matter most to them.
Class room sizes are unmanageable and I will work to get the resources to assist teachers and students to succeed in a school environment.
Open and transparent communication is needed. I will ensure I am readily available to listen to all parents and staff so we can collaboratively work towards our shared goals. I believe all parents have the right to know what children are learning and how they are learning.
The catchment issue must be solved collaboratively. I will be your voice in pushing for more funding and organization from the Provincial government to solve this.
Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?
I believe Pembina Trails School Division Ward 3 needs someone with grass roots experience, who understands the concerns of parents and children. I have full knowledge of the day to day issues parents, children, teachers and staff at our schools face. I believe if I am given an opportunity by voters to represent them, I will meet their expectations. I promise to be accessible and visible in the community, and will always advocate for the betterment of our children and education system.
