Canmore municipal campground manager, guide, cook, millwright
Volunteer, community or committee/board experience:
How long have you lived in the community:
Why are you running for public office:
To serve my community. To add a voice and perspective from below.
What qualities or characteristics would you bring to public office:
I have a plan. I think all first time council members should have the same plan. The plan has four words: shut up and listen.
Listen to the voters, the experienced members of council and the voice of experts both in and outside of town administration.
What issues are important to you as a candidate:
1) Low cost housing: I support the creation of low cost, single owner (private, coop, cchc, etc) apartment blocks through out down town. 2) Protecting wild spaces by limiting future development to Canmore existing footprint. 3) Car free downtown and increased biking infrastructure
What is the greatest challenge facing elected officials in the community when it comes to planning for the future of the community:
There are many challenges facing this town. The complex and overlapping governmental jurisdictions make even the most basic changes to our community difficult. Thousands of people with differing opinions on the right direction to take doesn't help either.
How can people find out more about you or ask you questions:
Google me. Find me on Facebook. Give me a call and invite me over for coffee. I would love to listen to your perspective.
