Prior to being elected, I worked as a fundraiser and project manager for many residents’ groups which were seeking to build, improve and strengthen their community (see experience). Residents’ groups and community-based organizations are the grass roots, the heart and soul of their neighbourhoods. They provide a united voice on many fronts, and can:
- Focus the community on special initiatives, (celebrations, issues, opportunities)
- Look within their community to encourage, foster and develop a network to discuss issues affecting the interests of the community
- Be a voice for the community to levels of governments, industry, and local business
In the South Winnipeg–St. Norbert Ward, we have many established residents’ groups and community organizations, and I am in the process of hopefully creating a few more. Most groups meet once every month or two to discuss topics of interest.
To become involved in YOUR residents’ group or community organization, please contact the group directly or E-Mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we can put you in touch with the members.
