What is your background or political experience?
I have been on council for the past two terms. I am married with two great kids. I manage Lordco Parts and have lived in Hope for 12 years. Board chair Community Futures Sun Country. Involved in: Hope Lions Club, Fire Department, Hope Motorsports Group, Scouting, Brigade Days. My entire family is very involved in the community.
What are the most pressing issues facing Hope?
Infrastructure upgrades are the most pressing. This includes roads, water and sewer, buildings and parks. Continuation of a long term upgrade and replacement plan is needed in order to protect the community’s assets.
If elected, what would be your main priority as councillor?
I will work hard to advance the community vision. We will be updating the OCP in 2015, involving the community, and that will be one of the guiding documents. I will push for realistic budgets containing expenditures that are needed and wanted.
Why should people vote for you?
I have the experience from the last two terms that will provide consistency, information and understanding to a mainly new council. I am a good listener and I take action. I am involved. I put my heart and soul into Hope council.
