North Kildonan

In North Kildonan, which absorbed the Old Kildonan neighbourhoods of Riverbend and Rivergrove, incumbent city councillor Jeff Browaty has held the seat since being elected in 2006. He has just one challenger – Andrew Podolecki.

Podolecki, a University of Winnipeg student, is running in North Kildonan for the second time.

Browaty had earlier entertained the idea of challenging incumbent Brian Bowman for mayor.

Browaty introduced the motion for the civic election ballot question that will ask voters on Oct. 24 if they want Portage and Main reopened to pedestrians.

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.
