Minister running for councillor in St. James-Brooklands

  • Print

Scott Gillingham is taking a run at replacing the outgoing Scott Fielding as councillor for the St. James-Brooklands ward.

Gillingham, a 12-year resident of St. James, issued a news release Sunday indicating he would focus on infrastructure.

"Many of the roads, back lanes and sewers in our ward are aging and in dire need of repair," he said.

He also promised to foster openness and transparency at city hall.

"We can’t have a repeat of the fiascos we’ve seen coming out of city hall in the last year," he said.

"Taxpayers expect to know what projects are underway, how much they are going to cost, and when those projects go over budget."

Gillingham has been an ordained minister for the last 22 years and has served in several community groups such as the St. James-Assiniboia 55-Centre and helped launch the Westgrove in Bloom community garden project for residents of a Manitoba Housing complex in west Winnipeg.

Fielding plans to seek the provincial Progressive Conservative nomination in Kirkfield Park.

The civic election will be held Oct. 22.
