David Mintz explains he's running as the Liberal Candidate for the Morden-Winkler constituency because he believes in "a new way of doing things."
"That's been the big driver for me, looking at a new type of politics and policy-making... a type of politics that's not adversarial," he explains. "I'm very proud as a party we've stayed out of that and stuck to the issues which is what Manitobans want to hear about."
He notes healthcare and the environment remain top priorities for constituents. "There are ways we can reduce our spending on healthcare and improve the level of care that people get, and that's simply by making greater investments into preventative healthcare."
Climate change is a major issue as well. "We need new approaches to how we're going to deal with this, and we need immediate action."
Mintz says they've put forward an aggressive climate action plan that aims to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030 and includes investment in green technology.
"There are ways to do this that don't cost us much, and that's by improving and aligning the economy for this change. Because it's coming, and we'll either be ready for it or not."
In the Morden-Winkler constituency, Robin Dalloo is running for NDP, incumbent Cameron Friesen for the PC party, Mintz for the Liberals and Mike Urichuk for the Green Party.
Election day is September 10.
