I want to continue to work to make Canmore a great place to work, live and build a life. I want to build a #canmore4every1

I am a results focussed representative and therefore have learned how to play the long game. I know that by continuing to build positive relationships, concentrating on the goal and showing dogged perseverance, much can be achieved.

Appropriate housing for seniors, families and our workforce; building social inclusivity; transportation solutions including parking; environmental sustainability including (but not limited to) keeping our designated wild-spaces, wild.

Leading the community into the future understanding that facing the future may include change. The new council will need to be making calculated choices while ensuring that we do not make decisions out of fear. We need to be the master of that change
