Why should I vote for you?
I would bring a fresh approach and new ideas to Victoria city council and the CRD board. My 17 years of experience in the B.C. public service has given me experience in managing budgets and programs. I will hard to deliver on your priorities.
Your main goal if elected?
Ensuring we preserve and improve public facilities like Crystal Pool, by developing a 20-year infrastructure plan. I would consult Victorians on priorities like a new central library branch or performing arts centre, and work with mayor and council to develop a practical funding strategy to implement the plan.
