Why should I vote for you?

Esquimalt is my home. I plan to raise my family here, so I have a keen interest in keeping our community prosperous, inviting and safe. I care about our community, and I will bring that dedication to Esquimalt council.

 

Your main goal if elected?

I believe that thriving businesses, environmental integrity and economic sustainability are necessary to make our community attractive to new developments and residents. If elected, my promise is to work with community groups, businesses, developers, individuals and families to make our community the best place to live, work and play.
