Questionnaire Response

Markus Chambers - St. Norbert - Seine River

What got you into politics?

Winnipeg is a progressive, dynamic and diverse city, my foray into politics seeks to preserve all things good about our city, mitigate the negative and move us towards the potential this city has.  Winnipeg’s greatest strength is the resiliency of its people.  Working in collaboration with communities and stakeholders will provide opportunities for us to flourish as a city while being able to assist our most vulnerable.

What experience will you bring to compliment your role as (Mayor / Councillor / School Trustee)?

My 30 years working for the provincial government at various levels, plus my previous four years as a city council will position me to continue leading my ward and our city in a positive direction.  I am a collaborator and execute plans quickly and as efficiently as possible.  My ability to team build means all voices around the council table will be consulted and views considered as we make the best choices for our city.

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?

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion as well as better value for dollar (transparency and accountability of council as well as our public service) will be my main focus in the second term of service.

Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?

I am acclaimed so I know I will be able to implement my vision in support of the growth of our city.
