What is one project you would like to see completed during your term on district council and how will you achieve that goal?

To be honest, I don’t think that the first year on council I will be able to complete any of the projects that I care about such as a new water system, more health facilities for seniors, bringing families back to Sicamous, affordable camping and pursuing talks on taking over the old CPR tracks to bring more tourism to the area such as the Kettle Valley railway tracks.

What I will bring to the table is a common-sense approach to the issues that are currently being discussed, such as reimbursement from the province for the costs of providing potable water to residents after the flood compromised our system and ongoing infrastructure such as improvement of roads and the revitalization of our business sector.

If elected, I would like to support community groups, working with them to procure grants and keep them alive and well in our community.
