It’s official: Judy Wasylycia-Leis is stepping up to face incumbent Sam Katz in the race for mayor.

Wasylycia-Leis, who resigned her seat in Parliament as the NDP representative for Winnipeg North last week, officially registered her campaign Monday afternoon at the city clerk’s office.

“There’s no going back now,” said Wasylycia-Leis, 58, after stepping out of the clerk’s office at city hall. “Signed, sealed, delivered — I’m registered.”

Registration is necessary before prospective mayoral candidates can solicit funds and start campaigning.

Wasylycia-Leis wouldn’t go into detail about her platform but said she plans to do so Tuesday at a news conference at 11:30 a.m. at The Forks to officially kick off her campaign.

“I’m going to beat (Katz) by working hard and presenting a vision the people want,” she said. “I’m very happy to have made the decision and now the work starts. I’m ready for the fight.”

Wasylycia-Leis served 13 years as a member of Parliament and previously spent seven years as a Manitoba MLA, from 1986 to 1993.

Former Manitoba Liberal leader Sharon Carstairs will act as Wasylycia-Leis’s campaign co-ordinator.

Wasylycia-Leis said she hopes to get backing from people of many different political stripes in the lead-up to the Oct. 27 civic election.

“I’ve always said from the very beginning that I would not present as a candidate unless I could prove that I had support from a wide range of folks in this province and from all political parties, and I know I’ve got support,” she said.

Mayoral candidates can register until Sept. 21. The nomination period for mayoral candidates runs from Sept. 15 to 21, during which prospective contenders must collect and submit at least 250 signatures of eligible voters before being placed on the ballot.

Wasylycia-Leis is the only person registered for the mayoral race so far.

Elmwood-East Kildonan Coun. Lillian Thomas had committed to run late last year, but has now bowed out and said she’ll support Wasylycia-Leis.

Thomas, who has served on council since 1989, said she won’t be running for her seat again this fall. She said her assistant of six years, Darryl Livingstone, will be run in the ward.

Katz has said he plans to run again, but did not register Monday.

Transcona Coun. Russ Wyatt, who had kicked around the idea of a mayoral run, announced Friday he would not be seeking the position.

Didn't Wasylycia-Leis vote down the federal tough on crime bill?

I wonder who Wasylycia-Leis would sit on her EPC?

If Sammy is smart he will target JWL's track record in regards to her voting in parliament and show that she is nothing more than a puppet for the NDP party..

How to sink Judy W.


What do you believe is the most effective way to combat crime in our city?


Follow up question
Just how much is your track record of showing love for criminals and allowing them to go free going to impact that?

But,,for the record.

Sammy is as of right now, fricked. big time. he has basically been allowing her to run rampant through the headlines without much of anything other then. I welcome her to the race.

Unless 15 minutes after she announces her campaign points he comes out swinging a ballistic nuclear missile he will not be able to claw back from this publicity

I don't know who I wll vote for, as my usual smart thinking is vote for the "Jewish" person! lol
sammy has asked a Liberal Lawyer to chair his run for the money, and I had an unfortunate run in with that particular lawyer, who did not do what he had promised to do, with my lawyer! I was thinking of reporting him to the law Society, but decided against that . my own lawyer was furious, because Lawyers are not supposed to lie! I wasn't aware of that rule!

LOL nice VISION!!!

"All Winnipeggers should have a stake in the business of city hall,
but city hall shouldn't just be open for business," she said, adding
Katz has done things to make her "very, very angry."

Speaking to reporters afterward, she declined to say what those things are.

She also refused to say whether she will raise property taxes,
refused to say whether she prefers bus rapid transit to light rail
transit and refused to offer her opinion on the stadium deal.

She said she will consult with people during the campaign before she makes specific promises."http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/breakingnews/Wasylycia-Leis-announces-campaign-today-92757999.html

Why are you bothering to run Judy?

Add "I am not completely incompetent" to that list, and you would have a very good shot. There were two other contenders last time around, but unfortunately both were wing-bats.
