Why should I vote for you?

I have business and community experience that will focus council to make informed and financially responsible decisions. I have managed complex organizations that have significant economic impact and I have worked with the community services sector for over twenty years. I find ways to get thing done, am not afraid of conflict, speak my mind on the issues (rather than what is popular) and am a patient strategist.

 

Main goal if elected?

My main goal would be to change City Hall’s thinking from that of the stressed urban core to that of the vibrant Capital City with a unique harbour asset. Victoria is a place where residents, visitors, and business want to be because of our natural advantages.
