• Jamie Dumont - Dumont is running to become a trustee with the Winnipeg School Division in Ward 1.

She has also volunteered on the board of directors with the Women’s Health Clinic, the Aboriginal Chamber of Commerce, and the Sir John Franklin and Corydon Community Centres.

Dumont’s platform prioritizes strong and stable provincial funding of public schools to reduce the reliance on property taxes; setting school policies that reflect the priorities of parents and teachers; improved outcomes in reading, writing, and math; advancing reconciliation by making school a safe place for Indigenous children and their peers; and investing in infrastructure and reducing long term operating costs by ensuring school buildings are energy efficient and green. She lives in River Heights with her husband and two children who attend École J.B. Mitchell School.

• Bruce Kemp - Kemp is running to become a trustee with the Winnipeg School Division in Ward 1. Kemp is an educator who has worked in Manitoba for 20 years, currently teaching middle years students. He was educated at the University of Winnipeg where he received a Bachelor of Arts and later graduated from the University of Brandon with a Bachelor of Education.

According to Kemp’s campaign materials, his policy decision making will be based on educational practice and not on political will, he will advocate for the wellbeing of all students while working with other trustee members, and will give highest priority to athletics and the arts. Kemp also volunteers for the Manitoba Speed Skating Association and the River Heights Speed Skating Club. He has coached South End United, Corydon Comets, and River Heights soccer teams as well as basketball and flag football. The father of one lives with his family in River Heights.
