When I was first elected, I knew I wanted to open an office within my ward as a way to connect regularly with citizens in an open and accessible way.

Now, at my Leila Avenue street-front community office, I meet dozens of you formally and informally every week to discuss your views and concerns.

Of course, I also hear from many constituents by email, fax, phone, and snail mail. But I find that personal, face-to-face communication allows for a type of authentic, meaningful dialogue that is very important to me, and my community office serves that purpose.

My community office is located at 646 Leila Ave., which is centrally located in Old Kildonan. The office is conveniently accessible by bus and has plenty of free parking. We are open regular business hours, but since I also know that not everyone’s schedule fits the standard mould, I am also available evenings and Saturdays by appointment for those who wish to meet in-person.

The northwest quadrant of the city remains a very popular place for new immigrants to settle. I meet many families that come in to ask questions on how to better understand the services that the City of Winnipeg provides. It is a pleasure to meet so many of you, and I am proud you have chosen Old Kildonan to be your new home and community.

I appreciate the relationships I have developed with so many of you because it truly does impact the actions I take at City Hall on your behalf. One of the things I value most in these relationships is hearing your visions for the future of our city, and so I hope you’ll stop by and visit me one day soon to share your views.
