A former city of Steinbach employee wants to serve on city council.
Jac Siemens spent 18 years in the parks and recreation department, 16 them as the manager.  He says it's his passion for the community that has driven him to seek election.  Siemens believes the city must continue to strive for a growth rate of about 2 per cent per year and make sure its facilities keep pace.  He says that will require council to review such things as whether we need a new arena and cultural arts centre.  Siemens also feels it is important for council to partner with all groups in the community to make sure it is in touch with everyone's goals.
