A final thank you from Nancy

I would like to extend a huge thank you to all my family and friends who gave so freely of their time over the past four months. From the bottom of my heart, I appreciate all the sacrifices you made.

Any campaign comes at a cost to the candidate’s family in terms of time spent focused on the campaign. My family has been my ROCK through this process — I would not be who I am without them.

To the 4,827 people who believed in me and cast a ballot for me, thank you! I enjoyed connecting with many outstanding St. Norbert-Seine River citizens since late June and look forward to continuing to forge community connections.

It’s a new day at City Hall, with a new group of people chosen by the citizens of Winnipeg. I wish all the best to the new council. May you have wisdom in your decision making as you strive to best represent the people of your wards and our city.

And finally, a huge thank you to all the candidates who had the courage to put their names on the ballot. You kept the democratic process alive and well.

Nancy will be participating in two all-candidate forums this month prior to Oct. 24’s civic election.

Licks Ice Cream Parlor Campaign Pop-Up Event

Come for a cold confection, stay for a conversation!

Licks Ice Cream Patio (20 Britannica Road) is celebrating 25 years of providing sweet treats and sweet memories to south Winnipeggers on Saturday, Aug. 18!

Nancy Cooke — Winnipeg City Council candidate for St. Norbert-Seine River — is honoured to be part of their festivities. She will be holding a pop-up event at Licks and be on hand with her mobile office and dedicated team between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. to meet, greet and talk with the community’s residents.

Come out for a shake, sundae, or soft serve, acoustic music by Mark Mogan, and to chat with Nancy about your priorities for St. Norbert-Seine River and how it can be made more vital, vibrant, and viable community!

RSVP to our Facebook event.

Official Campaign Launch event!

Nancy’s been hitting the campaign trail every day since her registration a week ago, but she will be officially launching her quest for a Winnipeg City Council seat with a fabulous, free event later this month.

On July 19 between 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m, join her at St. Norbert Hotel for Nancy’s official campaign launch. Hear from Nancy as she kicks off her journey to become the next city councillor representing the brand-new St. Norbert-Seine River ward. Oh, and did we mention there’s going to be free pizza?

For more information, see our event page on Facebook!

There’s no charge to attend and you don’t need a ticket. Donations to Nancy’s campaign and non-perishable canned food items for Winnipeg Harvest will be gratefully accepted.

Nancy has been a voice, champion and advocate for the St. Norbert-Seine River community for the past twenty years, and this fall, wants to continue to be just that in the role of your city councillor.

Talking transit!

We want to talk transit with you!

Mobility is the lifeblood of a city and a strong, well-integrated public transit system that’s reliable, safe, and accessible is an integral part of that mobility. 

For the next two weeks, we’ll be hitting up bus stops all around St. Norbert-Seine River to talk with you while you wait for your morning bus about the improvements you’d like to see made to transit — because improving our transit system will help us create an even better Winnipeg.

Here’s where we’ll be (we’ll be wearing placards for easy identification.) We hope to catch you on your commute!

Registration Day!

Nancy went into City Hall a citizen this morning and came out a candidate! As the old saying goes, every journey begins with a single step.

With her registration today, Nancy has officially entered the race for Winnipeg city councillor for St. Norbert-Seine River. Nancy’s lived in the community for 20 years, and with a wide breadth of experience in both public and private sectors, she wants to work with you to create a better today and tomorrow.

A very special thank you to all who woke up early and channelled their arts and craft skills to whip up some impromptu signs of support.

Prepping some signs to surprise Nancy with.

 

A good showing on a sunny morning!

Nancy looks forward to meeting and talking with community members and learning about your priorities for St. Norbert-Seine River.

Nancy with her husband Bill and her parents, Beth and Craig.
