It has been an honour to serve the people of Kirkfield Park. Together we fought to save the Westwood Library and John Blumberg Golf Course and had the gifted amber flashing lights in school zones accepted, with the first set installed on Bedson Street. Our green spaces, parks, and pathways received more funding for improvements during my tenure than in the last ten years. Additionally, we provided funding for repairs to Allard Arena and added Pickle Ball courts to the KW Community Centre.
I am incredibly proud of my work to bring Homes for Heroes to the city, which will help more than 150 homeless veterans living on the streets and ultimately eradicate veteran homelessness in Winnipeg. I'm grateful to the many people I brought together to find solutions and move the project forward. With your support, I challenged how your hard-earned money was spent and fought to increase accountability and transparency in the city government.
But there is more work to be done, such as improving Health Care and specifically the services at the Grace Hospital. We also need to develop more senior housing so you can choose to stay in your community. Crime is increasing at alarming rates, and as the former Chair of the Winnipeg Police Board, I will push for solutions to address the issues affecting every one of us. I will work to ensure that transit shelters are safe for everyone and that we implement a focused program to crack down on the loud vehicles and drag racing occurring Sunday nights in our neighbourhoods. I will fight for much-needed funding to improve Allard Arena and the Kirkfield-Westwood Community Center.
I have been a strong voice for our community during the last four years, and I am committed to being that same strong voice in the Legislature.
Kevin is considered a successful and accomplished senior executive.
