Questionnaire Response

Shawn Nason - Transcona

Why did you decide to run in the 2018 (Winnipeg Civic Election / School Board Election)?

I decided to run for office due to a sincere passion to give back to the community that has given so many opportunities to my family.

My small-town values, work ethic, and blue-collar upbringing are what drew me to Transcona many years ago. I’m hopeful my service in the community and my knowledge of legislative process and public finances will ensure that Transcona gets the funding, projects, and civic services to make our community an even better place for all families.

What experience will you bring to complement your role as (Mayor / Councillor / School Trustee)?

I have served the Province of Manitoba for the past two years as the Special Legislative Assistant to the Minster of Families and the Minister of Indigenous and Northern Affairs. Prior to that I served as the Constituency Manager for the former Member of Parliament for Elmwood-Transcona, Lawrence Toet. Previous to that, I spent 15 years in the Information Technology and Project Management fields.

Throughout my years of continuous involvement in Transcona, I have learned a great deal about the specific needs of our community. I am ready to get to work to use my knowledge and experience to make our great community even better.

What are some issues that you would like to stand for in your role as (Mayor / Councillor / School Trustee), and why are these issues important to you?

My goal is to ensure Transcona remains a place we are proud to work and play. Transcona is unique and I want our children to be proud to call it home; I want future generations to see it as their first choice for where to live.

In order to accomplish this, I have put forward a broad platform, as the needs of our community are broad and varied. My goal is to serve the community with the respect and work ethic that they are looking for in a representative. I encourage you to review my full platform at

What is something that you appreciate about the (City of Winnipeg / the ward / the school ward or school division) you wish to represent?

Transcona is one the best kept secrets in the City: It is a great place to live, work, and play! As Councillor, I want to create opportunity for new families and businesses to enjoy the wonderful sense of community we have here in Transcona.
