How long have you lived in the community:
Why are you running for public office:
What qualities or characteristics would you bring to public office:
I work to build connections between businesses and environmentalists, between First Nations and our schools, between the
Town and Parks Canada. We need to work toward our common interests.
What issues are important to you as a candidate:
People talk a lot about housing and parking, of the 16 candidates, I'm the only one who has built a large underground
parkade in the downtown and has built housing above.
I value transparency in government.
What is the greatest challenge facing elected officials in the community when it comes to planning for the future of the community:
1) The parking, housing and congestion set of problems rest on the foundation of our rusty old Land Use Bylaw. The Land
Use Bylaw needs a re-write.
2) All our livelihoods assume a wildfire will not wipe us out like Fort McMurray. We need a resilient fire preparedness plan.
3) Our town's buildings and infrastructure need to adapt to the realities of global warning and a low carbon future.
By working together, we can meet these three grand challenges. That's our common purpose.
How can people find out more about you or ask you questions:
If you have questions, comments or ideas, I'd love to hear from you.
