By developing strong relationships with all other levels of government, Sicamous would be in a better position to negotiate funding. These funds are funded by you and awarded to those communities who have the knowledge and resources to apply for them. This is our money, and it is my intention to ensure we get our fair share back, so that we can move Sicamous forward while minimizing the tax burden to its residents. Chairing the finance committee has given me an understanding of the complexity of municipal finance, and 45 years of business management will enable me to ensure fiscal accountability.
