Daniel McIntyre

Daniel McIntyre incumbent Cindy Gilroy is facing two challengers – Josh Brandon and Sarowar Miah.

Brandon lives in Wolseley and is a social justice advocate, environmentalist and community organizer. Restaurant owner Miah lives and works in the West End and is heavily involved in the Bangladeshi community.

Gilroy was first elected in 2014 and promoted to the mayor’s executive policy committee in 2016. She’s supported public transit and active transit and pushed to have the West End Library renamed for her predecessor, the late Daniel McIntyre Coun. Harvey Smith.

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.

Josh Brandon

I live on Camden Place in Wolseley with my partner Karen. I grew up in Surrey B.C. and moved to Winnipeg in 2007. I am a community organizer and policy analyst working on issues of social justice and poverty elimination at the Social Planning Council of Winnipeg (on election leave). Earlier this year, I led research and analysis of the Winnipeg Street Census, a multi-stakeholder research project that interviewed over 1,500 people experiencing homelessness. I am the former chair of Make Poverty History Manitoba where I helped push the provincial government to implement Rent Assist, a program that helps thousands of low income Manitobans access housing.
