Looking forward to serving St. James
It is an honour to be elected as your new councillor for the St James-Brooklands-Weston ward.
I am excited to have the opportunity to represent you at city hall and am committed to following through with the objectives I set out during my campaign.
I have to acknowledge the great work former councillor Scott Fielding did in his eight years of office. There was a strong focus on parks and opens spaces, community clubs and streets. This is something I will continue to enhance over my term.
One of the highlights of my election campaign was having the opportunity to meet you face-to-face, listening to your wants and needs throughout your community. As promised, I will be addressing the infrastructure needs in the ward as a matter as top priority. I have set up meetings with the Public Works Department to outline these concerns and to ensure these needs are being met.
Community parks and community centers are also an important part of any neighborhood. They provide a safe and healthy space for our children, youth and our future. I am working toward necessary revitalization to our parks, playgrounds and community centers. They are the
centrepieces of St. James.
As you may be aware, I have been heavily involved in the St. James Assiniboia 55+ Centre. Seniors are more active than ever. They’re staying healthy, having fun and feeling great. The centre helps to reinforce independence, increased mobility and is a great way to come together and build strong relationships.
Community organizations such as the St. James Assiniboia 55+ Centre are meeting the needs of a growing demographic. A bigger space with sufficient parking is necessary in order for seniors to grow and thrive within this organization.
I am committed to seeing the St. James Civic Centre renovated and expanded to include new space for the St. James Assiniboia 55+ Centre. I will continue to work with the centre, as well as other levels of government, in order to see these future goals come to light.
I appreciate your feedback and support. I will be holding regular community forums throughout the ward beginning the new year. In the meantime, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com, or my phone 204-986-5848, with any issues or concerns you may have in our community
Thank you again for the support you have shown, I look forward to speaking with you.
