Reason for running

submitted by the candidate or their team
As one committed to the community and dedicated to progress, I’m once again vying to be a public servant by running for the Office of District of North Vancouver City Councillor. I hope to bring a new, fresh vision and voice to our city council and shape the future of our community. I believe that contractors of small, medium or large sizes are equally viable candidates for our district.
North Vancouver is a special place to live, work, and raise a family. I have the experience, problem-solving skills, and vision to give our city a bright future and help meet its challenges.
Great communities require great leaders. We need leaders with new visions and the dedication to get the job done, and I believe in making decisions based on what we as a community need, not what I think we need. I welcome using reports, studies, community feedback, etc., to make better-informed policymaking decisions for the community across the board.

As all we know, growth does NOT stop, so we should help each other to stay on the right path going forward. Now is the time to band together as a community like never before and network with ideas, technology, and actions, make and support fair and just laws, volunteer, help, and share. I feel a good City Councillor should act as an advocate for our entire city, demanding transparency and results and going to bat for the little guy, and that is what I am good at!
