Reason for running
I championed the creation of a capital fund that has generated over $21 million in non-tax revenue that enables us to enhance parks, cycling infrastructure, fields, arenas, libraries and so much more. I've collaborated with colleagues to create more opportunities for businesses to come to Coquitlam, offering residents the chance to have a better work/life balance through reduced or eliminated commutes. These future neighbourhoods need to be supported by new parks, trails, and infrastructure that enables us to get out of cars and into more walkable, GHG-friendly communities.
