Classic 107 - Winnipeg's classical and jazz radio station.

The list of registered candidates for Winnipeg’s upcoming municipal election is up to five, with incumbent mayor Brian Bowman adding his name today.

“(I’m) looking forward to the campaign. It’s been an incredible honour for me to serve and for our family to serve over the last four years,” Bowman told reporters after officially registering this morning at City Hall.

Bowman’s wife Tracy was by his side. She said the whole family is behind him.

“This very much is a family decision… if Brian is elected again we’re happy to serve as a family,” said Tracy.

Bowman says he wants to offer a positive vision for a growing city.

He joins Umar Hayat, Jenny Motkaluk, Doug Wilson, and Don Woodstock as official candidates for the October 24th election.
