For the past 4 years Coquitlam has seen an unprecedented level of development and growth. I have spoken with residents across Coquitlam and many are concerned about the effect this is having on our city. They are concerned about the strain being put on our roads, parks, schools, healthcare system and local environment. I believe we need to listen to residents and slow down to a moderate level of development and growth.
Slowing down doesn't mean failing to address housing affordability. It means building housing that actually meets the needs of Coquitlam residents. That means more 3 bedroom units for families, more affordable units for first time buyers and seniors, and more dedicated rental units to take the pressure off the cost of rent.
My other top priorities are: Investing in Parks, Sports & Recreation, Prioritizing Our Environment and Careful City Spending.
I've been a resident of Coquitlam for over 20 years and I'm proud to call Coquitlam home. I grew up here and now my wife and I are raising our family here. I have a degree in Economics and Political Science from Simon Fraser University and work as a Small Business Consultant based in the Tri-Cities. I believe in giving back to our community and I'm excited about the opportunity to serve on City Council.
For the past 4 years I have served on the Sports and Recreation Advisory Committee at City Hall. For the past 2 years, I have served on the Coquitlam River Watershed Roundtable. I am a member of the Tri-City Green Council and the group PCUF (Protect Coquitlam’s Urban Forest).
