Waverley West Ward

The City of Winnipeg is growing, and boundaries were recently changed to create the new Waverley West ward! I am very proud and humbled to have been acclaimed in the 2018 election to represent the new Waverley West ward and look forward to serving residents to the best of my abilities. For more details on population and exact street boundaries, see Waverley West Ward.
