Why are you running?
I am running because I believe I have and can continue to be a voice for all people. I take the time to listen to all who stop to talk. I help wherever I can.
It has been an honour to serve the municipality for the last four years on council. I believe I have shown it is important to not only be a councilor but to be active in our community and to give back, helping out whenever possible. To lead by example and promote our community and all that it has to offer.
What are the key issues?
Presently a lot of residents are finding it difficult to find and secure affordable housing. The cost of living has increased drastically the last couple of years. There are many residents and families struggling and some are on the verge of homelessness and poverty. The mental health and the drug situation with people young and older are also challenges in communities everywhere .
We also face challenges with getting more support from higher levels of government for our Infrastructure, our eroding shorelines, etc.
What do you hope to achieve if elected?What skills and experience do you bring?
Working together as a whole to do things to protect our environment.
Support lobbying higher levels of government for more help in maintaining and improving our infrastructure,
