I am grateful to the residents of Area A for their continued confidence in me.
As the Director for Area A, I remain a committed participant in local government.
During my previous terms in office, I know that I have made a difference to local residents via projects, grants and recreational assets. I will to continue to represent constituent interests and needs.
As an experienced politician, I know how to ask tough questions, make difficult decisions and challenge the status quo.
I am intentional when looking for more efficient ways to deliver services.
I am very intentional about not living in the past, while keeping the past as a reference for lessons learned. I focus on the future, poised to respond to new opportunities, and I stay current on the issues and challenges that our diverse communities face.
I will work hard to collaborate with all communities, as we seek solutions to common problems.
In the coming term, my priorities will be: the Fruitvale and District water system; completion of the Train Station/Museum, funded by grants and Area A dam revenues; policy and zoning changes that advance housing needs; seeking environmental best practices; promoting better understanding of the rights of Indigenous People; and responding to Area A/Beaver Valley needs as they arise.
Most importantly, I will always listen to constituents.

A reminder to Area A folks to visit the polls as you select your school district reps — you still get to go vote!
