Why should I vote for you?

I bring to the council table the experience from three terms as a municipal councillor. My view of municipal governance focuses on the cost to the taxpayer for any project that may be considered for the township and to ensure the taxpayers receive the best value for their tax dollars spent.

 

Your main goal if elected?

My goal remains the same as in the past term – to ensure that the taxpayers receive the best possible service from their municipality delivered in an economical and sustainable way with respect to the environment and to continue to work on a long-term vision for the community that will service the citizens of Esquimalt well into the future.
