Charleswood-Tuxedo, the renamed Charleswood-Tuxedo-Whyte Ridge that absorbed the St. Charles ward neighbourhoods of Assiniboia Downs, Glendale, Kirkfield, and Westwood, is up for grabs after councillor Marty Morantz decided to run federally.

Kevin Klein, Kevin Nichols, Ken St. George and Grant Nordman are vying for the seat.

Nordman served two terms as the councillor in the former St. Charles ward until he was defeated by Shawn Dobson. The St. Charles ward was eliminated with the redrawing of ward boundaries that divided and merged into neighbouring St. James and Charleswood-Tuxedo.

Klein is a former Winnipeg Sun publisher who lives in the ward and called for voters who are thinking of making financial contributions to a candidate to give their money to the Manitoba Association of Women’s Shelters instead.

Nichols is a Charleswood resident and business owner who coaches football.

St. George is a Charleswood resident and nurse.

The Free Press invited all council and mayoral candidates to fill out a questionnaire about themselves, their platforms and what they hope to achieve in office. Read their responses below.

A strong focus, disciplined and honouring everyone's spiritual nature were some of the attributes Klein gained from years of martial arts practice culminating in the achievement of a black belt in the 3rd degree. Klein is considered a successful and accomplished senior executive with strong analytical and communication skills. He's recognized for his ability to assess internal and external operational opportunities and develop creative solutions. Patience, understanding, and confidence were gained from Klein's time as a Referee-in-Chief for minor hockey in Winnipeg, a role he continues to serve today.
