Questionnaire Response

Why did you decide to run in the 2014 Winnipeg Civic Election?

I decided to run for Mayor because I could see the mismanagement and waste occurring at city hall, all the while, taxes going up to pay for it. As a City Councillor, I became more frustrated and outspoken about the lack of respect citizens were receiving.

What experience will you bring to compliment your role as Mayor?

I have experience as a City Councillor. This is incredibly important because I understand and have working knowledge of every department and the people who work in them, the budget process and the status of many unfinished items. I hold an MBA and a BA and have worked in both private and public sectors. I know how to do more with less as a single mother with two boys.

What are some issues that you would like to stand for in your role as Mayor, and why are these issues important to you?

  1. Restore trust and confidence in City Hall by implementing the audit recommendations and cleaning up the mess. I was very vocal about the need for these audits. They showed incompetence, mismanagement and the RCMP is reviewing it.
  2. Fix the roads because they're a disgrace and indicative of what went in in number 1 above.
  3. Strive to build vibrancy and create opportunities for everyone to succeed.

What is one thing in particular that you appreciate about the City of Winnipeg?

I love our city. One thing I appreciate is that probably 90% if the City of Winnipeg workforce wants to make Winnipeg be a better place for everyone and they choose public service.

Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?

I am the best candidate for Mayor because I have municipal experience and I did NOT accept the status quo in my time on Council. If we are to fix what's wrong, one has to know what's going on. Being the Mayor of a city is not an entry level job. You deserve someone who will get right to work and who knows what to do to make our city be an inspiration-to those who built it, those who are deciding whether to live here and to get the best value for what citizens pay.
