How long have you lived in the community:
Why are you running for public office:
I'm seeking re-election because I want to continue the momentum we've started with the 2015-2018 strategic plan. The plan touches on all aspects of our life in Banff and includes the hot topics of housing and transportation.
What qualities or characteristics would you bring to public office:
The most important quality I would bring to public office is experience. I'm seeking my 3rd term on Banff Council and I'm very comfortable with how the town operates.
What issues are important to you as a candidate:
The two issues I hear about the most are transportation and housing. I personally also place a high priority on recreation, the environment and social well being
What is the greatest challenge facing elected officials in the community when it comes to planning for the future of the community:
I believe the greatest challenge facing elected officials in Banff when it comes to planning for the future in Banff is change. Most people don't like change but we seen Banff change considerably over the years. The funny thing about change is that change doesn't call ahead. You never know what change will bring. That's why it is so important to keep Banff at the forefront of change.
