Reason for running

submitted by the candidate or their team
I have worked in service to Chilliwack, British Columbia and Canada for 45+ years. It's in my DNA to serve, Ive never known anything else. I'm proud to be a long term resident of Chilliwack and always believed I can continue to serve and help make Chilliwack an even better place

Four years ago, I made promises to the City of Chilliwack and was rewarded with their vote and their trust. I have worked very hard to deliver on the promises I made 4 years ago. I committed to focus on public safety, parks and trails for people of all ages and capabilities, quality development, maintain a low tax rate and continue to build a city that is inclusive, diverse and accessible to everyone. There is still work to be done. If re-elected to council, my work and commitment will continue.
