Browaty stands tall against opposition in North Kildonan

  • Print

Voters in North Kildonan decided to stand by their man, re-electing councillor Jeff Browaty.


With 100% of the votes counted, Jeff Browaty took 63% of the vote, handily defeating challengers Brian Olynik (33%) and Wendy Pasaluko-Plas (4%). (All results were unofficial at the time of posting. They will be made official by the city's chief elections officer at noon on Oct. 28.)


"I’m ecstatic," Browaty said while celebrating the victory at his campaign headquarters.


"I’m overwhelmed by the confidence the voters showed in me and I have a lot to do. There are so many big projects coming up, like the Chief Peguis Trail extension, and there will be a lot of community consultation."
Browaty, a small-‘c’ conservative, was first elected to council in 2006, when he earned 52% of the vote and unseated 11-year veteran Mark Lubosch.


This time around he campaigned on infrastructure renewal, enhanced community safety, support for community centres, and improved accountability and communication with residents.


Browaty has served as a member of the city’s standing policy committees on infrastructure renewal and public works as well as property and development. He has chaired the environmental advisory committee and also represented the city on the riverbank management committee, alternative service delivery committee, the Winnipeg Art Gallery's board of governors, and the Red River Basin Commission.


Before entering civic politics, the lifelong resident of North Kildonan worked as a communications officer at the Manitoba legislature. He also worked as a real estate appraiser and in computer sales.


Browaty’s main challenger, Brian Olynik, is an adult education teacher. He ran as an independent and promoted crime prevention, improving city services, increasing transparency at city hall, and enabling community-based development.


Wendy Pasaluko-Plas also campaigned to represent the ward on a platform primarily based on opposition to the Chief Peguis Trail Extension.
