My name is David Redman.
I was born and raised in Ward 9, and have lived here my whole life aside from spending a couple years in Edmonton for university. On returning to Kitchener I’ve worked in several sectors from hospitality and manufacturing, to insurance and auto service where I’m currently working in management. I have lived on minimum wage, and worked many roles over the years, and I know the experience of working-class people.
I’ve experienced Kitchener’s growth and development ups and downs firsthand, particularly within the downtown. I’ve seen historic homes replaced with condos, my elementary school become a significant housing project, and the KW Multicultural Festival go from a few tents to a park-wide community event that I look forward to every year!
