Reason for running

submitted by the candidate or their team
Interest in protecting the welfare of senior citizen citizens and their communities.
Interest in working on solutions for homelessness and drug addiction issues in our downtown.

Seniors need protection from intrusive loud sound activities that disrupt their community.

Homelessness is not the major issue but drug addiction is. We need to develop long term treatment and monitoring facilities. Developing prevention services in our secondary schools.
