Brandon, Manitoba – After serving for two terms as an elected regional executive of the Southwest Region of the National Government of the Red River Metis, Minister Will Goodon declared his intention to stand for re-election to continue to serve Metis Citizens in the Southwest Region.
“It has been an incredible honour to serve the citizens, families and communities within the Southwest Region for the past eight years,” Minister Goodon stated. “I have been so fortunate to be a part of something bigger than all of us, and to see the progress we have made since I began working for the Metis Nation back in 1996. I do not take this duty lightly, in fact, I wear my heart on my sleeve while being ready to continue to stand up for the integrity of our nation.”
Minister Goodon has taken on several roles in his many years of service to Metis citizens. Among his most noticeable achievements has been in his role as Minister of Housing & Property Management in the MMF government. In the Southwest Region alone, Will has delivered on bringing housing solutions to life for people and families. These include the upcoming seniors duplexes in Binscarth and St. Ambroise, the construction of affordable housing units in St. Eustache, Portage la Prairie, and Brandon, and the building of daycare centres across the province.
In addition to his official roles in the MMF, Will has also been a life-long advocate for Metis harvesting rights. He put his own reputation on the line when he was charged for hunting without a provincial license in order to bring attention to Metis harvesting rights. His work on climate change and environmental issues is also well known, as are his efforts to protect vital parts of Manitoba’s ecosystem.
“I am asking for your confidence once more,” said Minister Goodon to the voters in the Southwest Region. “I am so encouraged by the strides and advances we have made as a Metis Government. I have dedicated my life to our Metis Nation and I know that with the support of our citizens, we can accomplish even more.”
You can trust Will to be there for you, your family, your community and your nation. An election website is currently being developed that will provide regular updates on the campaign.
On June 14, cast your vote for Will Goodon and the bright future of the Red River Metis.
