Key areas of focus:
-Housing affordability and diversity to meet our needs and encourage continued growth. Streamlined processes in development services with a culture to starting at YES! Focus on the 'missing middle'. Everyone needs a home.
-Relationships build on trust and supported by open communication to find long-term solutions to issues we are facing. Run to the issues and stay ahead of them (as opposed to reactively, when the horse is already out of the barn).
-Fiscal responsibility and earned public trust with continued enhanced financial reporting; moving the past Financial & Audit Committee model to the Committee of the Whole – you trust us with your PIN number, and it is all hands-on deck for shared oversight & accountability.
-An envious quality of life for all and a community where senior citizens can remain active, engaged, and thrive. Design new homes to accommodate Aging in Place.
I am a long-time resident of Prince George and together with high school sweetheart, Kevin, we have raised three incredible humans here, welcomed sons-in-laws and another grandchild is on the way! With a career primarily in the not-for-profit sector I have two terms on city council under my belt.
My vision for the City of Prince George is of a vibrant and diverse economy providing opportunity and innovation for businesses, good jobs, and an envious quality of life for residents with a focus on senior citizens.
I will bring my superior ethic, straight talk, and passion for our city to work for you.
Reason for running
The decisions made at the municipal level of government affect residents with the greatest impact. Where they build their education and career opportunities, raise a family, operate a business, spend leisure and volunteer time and their retirement years.
Prince George is known for its heart and can-do spirit! Whether it is the 2017/2018 wildfires, hosting world class and major events, rallying for a doctor shortage, coming together for higher education opportunities, galvanizing for a cancer centre, managing through a world pandemic…the City of Prince George is an incredible city. We are a little tired and there are some pressing issues…
Working together we can tackle them.
I have the experience, superior work ethic and ability to work meaningfully with senior levels of government, partners, residents, council colleagues and staff to find long term and sustainable solutions - while we continue to capture current and future economic opportunities for our city. No one-person can do it alone.
