Questionnaire Response

Sarah Guillemard - Fort Richmond

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

I have lived in Fort Richmond since 1983 and over the past 10+ years I have committed my time to working on community projects, advocating for students and families and leading teams at the grass-roots level. I was encouraged to run for the Progressive Conservative team by several friends and family members, and other community leaders, as they believed that I would be a strong, positive voice for all residents of Fort Richmond.

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

When the issue of overcrowding developed at Ecole St. Avila School, I worked with parents and the Pembina Trails School Division to find a solution that met the needs of all stakeholders.  In 2010, I was honoured to receive the Parent Council Recognition Award, presented by the Manitoba Association of Parent Councils for “outstanding achievements and dedication in promoting meaningful parental involvement to improve the education and well being of children in Manitoba.”  I encourage parents to become active participants in decisions that impact their children’s educational experience, and look forward to listening to and working with families in Fort Richmond.

I had the opportunity to contribute to some important environmental projects in South Winnipeg, helping to redevelop land with bioswales that clean runoff water before it enters our river systems.  The projects are now used as educational tools on water stewardship for the next generation. I have demonstrated my collaborative and open approach to addressing issues.

As Chair of the St. Norbert Water Stewardship coalition, I have worked closely with over 14 community groups and businesses in order to leverage more support from three levels of government for this important work.

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

What I have been hearing at the doors over the last several months is great concern over Emergency Room wait times, delays in seeing specialists for procedures, and the heavy tax burden on seniors and lower income residents. The people in Fort Richmond know we need change, and I know that our team has a better plan for a better Manitoba.

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

I have specific experience working on environmental projects, and working with parents and teachers to address local school issues. I will continue to advocate for our community and focus on collaborating with local groups within Fort Richmond.

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

Fort Richmond residents are a fantastic mix of older adults, students, newcomers, families and professionals. Our diversity makes our community vibrant and dynamic, and I especially appreciate the breadth of experience and perspective of my neighbours.

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

I am a mother of four, a wife, a dedicated community advocate, soccer coach and help lead an EAL group. My husband and I are raising our family in the same vibrant, caring neighbourhood that I grew up in, and I am honoured to be running in this election to be a part of the positive change that is needed for Manitoba.
