Rebecca Chambers - Winnipeg - 4
What got you into politics?
Like many, I have been watching the political landscape and tone shifting away from compassion, collaboration and research. I realized the increasing need for more involved, conscientious citizens to step forward and not only counter this shift but provide a practical and sustainable path forward.
What experience will you bring to compliment your role as (Mayor / Councillor / School Trustee)?
I am a teacher, a parent, a Metis citizen, a union executive, and a Master’s student in Education Administration. I value relationship-building as a cornerstone to solving big problems, and I honour and integrate the gifts of others. Combining my experience with my ways of working in relationship means I can recognize patterns and influences and work to better integrate processes to benefit a complex whole.
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?
Below is a short list of my top priorities.
- Audit the funding gaps in public education and present a tangible and accessible portrait of how much our provincial government is and is not funding.
- Reassess the funding model for students with additional needs, and move toward best practices in this area.
- Strengthen the relationships between schools and communities by connecting neighbourhood needs and resources to those within the school.
- Revisit the ending of full day kindergarten.
- Get police out of our schools.
- Nutrition programs in all schools.
Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?
I am overwhelmed by the early support in Wolseley, West Broadway, ArmstrongPoint and Downtown. I look forward to serving all of these communities, and building relationships with constituents to work together toward improving, challenging and celebrating public education in Winnipeg School Division.
