Raised in St. James Assiniboia, Marc Brandson made his wife Faye’s childhood neighbourhood of Tuxedo home in 2015 in order to profit from the beauty of the historic neighbourhood and its proximity to his workplace, the Assiniboine Park Conservancy.
As a father of two and husband to a human rights lawyer, Marc is passionate about creating a safe and prosperous community. When not out walking his two dogs Tiggy and Gizmo, or coaching his daughter’s soccer team, Marc works with local organizations developing ecological strategies and attends all Blue Bomber and Moose home games.
Marc is actively involved in the community as a Board Member for the St. James Pioneer Association, a Community Representative on a number of Animal Care and Organizational Committees, and is a long standing volunteer at both the Winnipeg Folk Festival and Festival Du Voyageur. Marc takes every opportunity to promote Manitoba as a destination, and makes a point of volunteering for special events in Winnipeg, such as the 2015 Grey Cup, BreakOut West and the Canada Summer Games.
Marc believes Manitoba’s future is bright. As MLA for Tuxedo, he would be an enthusiastic voice for the constituents, and focus on pragmatic, incremental changes to foster a thriving community and province.
