Winnipeg School Division board chair Suzanne Hrynyk said today that she will run for a city council seat in the Old Kildonan ward in October’s municipal election.
The 49-year-old Hrynyk has been a school trustee for eight years.
A supporter of bus rapid transit, Hrynyk said she will make infrastructure renewal a top priority. She lives just outside the ward, but will move into Old Kildonan once elected, said Hrynyk. She is a long-time New Democrat, Hrynyk said, but will not carry a party label in her campaign.
The seat is now held by Devi Sharma.
