Steeves throws hat in mayoral ring

Former local city councillor to run for mayor

  • Print

A former longtime St. Vital city councillor will make a run for mayor of Winnipeg.

Gord Steeves — who represented the St. Vital ward between 2000 and 2011 at city hall — recently announced his candidacy with the slogan "Mayor for a New Day."

In a news release, Steeves said he wants to help restore the pride of Winnipeggers.

"I am the first candidate who is willing to step forward and admit that our city deserves better," Steeves said in the release. "In recent time, Winnipeg has been headed down a path of which residents aren’t proud of and I’m here to put my name forward and stand up for all Winnipeggers."

"This is the time for our communities to see action, revitalization and unity. Along with the support of my family and countless Winnipeggers, I am confident that we will soon see a new way and a new day."

Steeves was first elected as a school trustee in 1998 and eventually left civic politics in 2011 to run unsuccessfully at the provincial level as a Progressive Conservative candidate in the Seine River riding, against NDP incumbent Theresa Oswald, in the October election that year.
