I’m a dad, a teacher, and a small business owner. I believe that we can solve our toughest challenges through collaboration and building community.

Reason for running

submitted by the candidate or their team
Coquitlam is one of the fastest growing multigenerational, multilingual, and multicultural cities in Canada. Over the past few years, it has become clear that cities are vital to addressing global challenges. Cities are not static. They are vibrant and in constant need of innovation and change. By their nature, cities must continuously adapt. Mayors are at the forefront of this change.

I am running because I feel the urgency of our residents. Families are struggling to keep up with rising costs. From our housing crisis, mental health, environmental threats, and pandemic recovery, there is no shortage of challenges affecting our city.

Across Coquitlam, public spaces are starved of resources or nonexistent. Our libraries are underfunded. These public spaces are vital and help forge relationships, ensure wellbeing, and instill a deep sense of community.

I am running to reimagine the future of Coquitlam. A future that paves a more resilient, sustainable, inclusive, healthy, and hopeful city for everyone.
