It’s not my platform or your platform — it’s Kelowna’s platform, it’s our platform.
Leadership involves listening. We don’t have to agree on everything, as long as we all agree that we’re here to make Kelowna the best it can be.
It’s time to put us first.
Tom has decades of experience as a small business owner, volunteer on social causes and local sporting events, and advocate with the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce.
Tom founded TD Benefits and has operated it right here in Kelowna since 2001. He has also previously served with the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce for over ten years, including two terms as President.
Tom has been actively involved in our community for years through Kelowna Minor Hockey, including as Chair of Kelowna's successful 2020 Memorial Cup bid, and on important community committees, like the Airport Advisory Committee, the Child Advocacy Centre Board, the City of Kelowna's Journey Home Task Force, and the new course development committee at Okanagan College.
Reason for running
Kelowna has the highest crime rate in Canada, the most homeless people we've ever had, the most traffic congestion, and highest taxes.
Tom is committed to working with local experts, city staff and internationally renowned experts to tackle our biggest issues. He knows that the key to getting the right results is to work with people who have expert experience, and never shutting the door on the public.
