Winnipeg households receiving Katz's 'State of city report'

  • Print

Mayor Sam Katz's office has sent Winnipeggers a mailout dubbed the "State of the city report."

The eight-page document, which extols the city's record on a number of policy fronts, began appearing in mailboxes Tuesday.

Katz told reporters Wednesday morning the brochures cost $28,000 to produce. He was not aware of the postage cost.

The mayor's office has a discretionary budget -- as well as access to a policy and communications budget.

Katz has not yet stated whether he will seek a fourth term in office next year. Winnipeggers go to the polls in October 2014.

Potential candidates in that race include Couns. Scott Fielding (St. James-Brooklands) and Paula Havixbeck (Charleswood-Tuxedo), lawyer and former St. Vital councillor Gord Steeves, privacy lawyer Brian Bowman and former NDP MP and MLA Judy Wasylycia-Leis, who ran against Katz in 2010.

All five have said they are considering a run. The registration period does not begin until May 2014.
