Kim Longstreet, an avid volunteer and longtime Brandonite, has announced she will seek the South Centre ward seat in the upcoming Brandon municipal election.

Longstreet is currently the interim executive director of Family Visions, a non-profit organization which provides community support services to individuals with disabilities.

"I’ve heard, listened, seen a lot of things that have been great for our community and some things that people continue to seek and ask for," Longstreet said. "I’m just wanting to … take the time now that I have the time in my life, and give back to the community in another capacity. I feel that being on council will give me that opportunity."

Longstreet is currently a member of Brandon’s poverty committee as well as a board member on The Father’s Pantry, a Christian organization that provides food for those less fortunate.

Longstreet’s resumé includes being a development officer with Child and Family Services of Western Manitoba Foundation. She has also been an employee with the City of Brandon in the economic development department and was also heritage coordinator.

Longstreet said she made the decision to run for council after much deliberation, and felt it was necessary to get her name out to the public.

"I’ve always been interested in the politics in Brandon," she said. "I’ve kind of kept up on what was going on, and I’ve been very involved in the community and you almost cant keep the two separate. You have to … know the politics of what’s going on in order to keep up with the community."

The South Centre ward seat is currently vacant, following longtime councillor Garth Rice’s resignation. Longstreet is the first candidate for the ward.

Brandon’s municipal election takes place Oct. 22.
