Pressing issues facing Hope is economic development, diversifying the tax base, increased federal and provincial downloading of costs and how to manage this.  Gaining public input on topics that will impact on the rate payer and ensuring that various methods of communication are initiated.

My main priority as councillor would be  to continue the current momentum that has been started by current council, to keep the vision of Hope being the best place to work, live and play.


Why should people vote for you?

I am level-headed and make decisions based on the facts that are presented to me. The learning curve over the past three years has been huge, it is only now that I am feeling like I can truly see some of the projects come to fruition. I truly love this community and want what is best for the taxpayers.
