About John

About John

I grew up in River Heights-Fort Garry and like many in our ward, returned to buy a home here with my wife, Silvia, to raise our two daughters.

With thanks to my father and uncle, I grew up with a lifelong belief in public service. I started as an entrepreneur and small business owner, managing companies in recycling and in conflict resolution.

Prior to being elected in 2009, I was a member of numerous community boards and spent 10 years as a trustee with the Winnipeg School Division.

During my time at City Hall as your city councillor, I’ve been honoured to serve as Chair of the Property Development, Heritage and Downtown Development Committee and now as Chair of the Innovation Committee. These roles have given me the opportunity to advance projects close to our community’s heart.

I’m proud to represent you and I will continue to work for you to keep our neighbourhood a vibrant, safe and active place for all families to live, grow and play.
