Questionnaire Response

Theresa Oswald - Seine River

Why did you decide to run in the 2011 Manitoba election?

What experience will you bring to compliment your role as MLA?

I know this community well as I have lived here nearly all my life, and I have connected with many families throughout my teaching career. Building and maintaining strong relationships is very important to me, and critical for a good MLA.
