Questionnaire Response

Flor Marcelino - Logan

1. Why did you decide to run in the 2016 Manitoba election?

I decided to run for re-election because there’s more work to be done in Logan and in the Province and I have the energy, determination and work ethic to see that it gets done.  Many social programs that have been initiated and continuously supported by an NDP government, like 24-hour lighthouses, women and youth empowerment, healthy babies and mothers, public childcare, housing, economic community development, adult literacy and learning, Metis and Indian Friendship Centres–to name a few–will be on the chopping block if the PCs come to power again. In addition, it frightens me that Crown Corporations like MB Public Insurance, Liquor and Lotteries and Manitoba Hydro could be privatized just like what happened to MTS. I have decided to run again to protect these agencies and services for the well being of my constituents and the rest of Manitoba.

2. What experience will you bring to complement your role as MLA?

I’ve been an MLA for the past 8 years, and a Cabinet Minister for 6. I’ve been building and strengthening networks in community and businesses.

3. Is there anything in particular you would like to change in our province? In your electoral division?

I would like to see our Province become even more prosperous; industries created and strengthened, more and better jobs for people and training and education opportunities for all.  For Logan, downtown revitalization and poverty alleviation are my top two priorities.

4. What key issue(s) / topic(s) would like to stand for in your role as MLA, and why is it important to you?

Downtown revitalization and poverty alleviation are issues that I will work to tackle specifically in the next 4 years if re-elected.

5. What is one thing in particular that you value about the electoral division that you wish to represent?

Logan is one of the most ethnically diverse ridings in Manitoba and I believe that this diversity strengthens this province.

6. Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?

Working on behalf of my constituents and this Province and part of the NDP has been an honour and a joy.  As I continue to work hard to earn their trust and represent them again, I would like to thank people for their support and encouragement. When people take the time to go out and vote, their voice contributes to a better community, a stronger community and one that can reach its potential.
