Naylor wins in Wolseley

It was a tough race for the NDP but the party has managed to hold onto its seat in Wolseley.

Lisa Naylor is the new MLA for the constituency. She defeated the Green Party of Manitoba’s David Nickarz, her closest competitor, by 686 votes, according to unofficial results.

Naylor said she's pleased to begin working for the people of Wolseley:

“I feel really happy. I feel happy for the community of Wolseley for knowing they get to still be represented by the NDP,” Naylor said outside her campaign office. “I feel incredible (about) the amount of work we put into this campaign, grateful for that support and grateful for the opportunity to represent Wolseley at the legislature.”

Victorious NDP candidate Lisa Naylor, pictured here with supporters and campaign workers, said she is very happy to be representing the people of Wolseley.

It was a tough race for the NDP but the party has managed to hold onto its seat in Wolseley.

Lisa Naylor is the new MLA for the constituency. She defeated the Green Party of Manitoba’s David Nickarz, her closest competitor, by 686 votes, according to unofficial results.

Naylor said she's pleased to begin working for the people of Wolseley:

"I feel really happy. I feel happy for the community of Wolseley for knowing they get to still be represented by the NDP," Naylor said outside her campaign office. "I feel incredible (about) the amount of work we put into this campaign, grateful for that support and grateful for the opportunity to represent Wolseley at the legislature."

Naylor is an activist who has worked in front-line community health organizations for 30 years.  She started her career as a street outreach worker in Toronto and worked as a counsellor with sexually exploited youth before moving to Winnipeg to work as a counsellor at the Women’s Health Clinic.

Naylor said she was very proud of her supporters.

"The Greens ran a national campaign, they had national support, there was an assumption that they were going to win this time," Naylor said. "We ran a local grassroots campaign with … volunteers who live right here in the community, I feel really positive that it was a very clear win for the NDP."

Naylor said she plans to focus on education, health care, and whatever else the residents of Wolseley want to bring to the Legislature.
