NEW:  Statement on Community Safety for All

Click here for more information

We need to unite people from all walks of life to work together. We need to build community solutions to some tough challenges. I am a trained and experienced facilitator and public engagement practitioner. I continue to engage people both in person and online. 

We need to have a strong community vision. We need to build on our strengths, be bolder, be more positive and solutions focused. I have helped champion many innovative initiatives in Kamloops.

We need experienced leadership on Council. I bring 30 years of public policy experience, 13+ years on city council, and experience as full time acting Mayor in some tough situations. I’ve served as President of the Union of BC Municipalities, and as a board member for the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. 

We need to build strong teams on council, in city hall, and across the community. Whether it be as a Rotary club member, a RunClub coach, an association President, or a committee chair, I have a clear sense of how strong teams function.

During this campaign I will propose bold ideas. I am looking forward to announcing these proposals in the weeks and months to come.

And, as in past campaigns, I will engage in at least 100 one-on-one conversations with citizens to help better understand what Kamloopsians are feeling and thinking now and into the future. 

Thank you so much to the citizens of Kamloops for the absolute honour and privilege of working on your behalf for 14 years. I am humbly putting my name forward as a candidate for Mayor. I really look forward to a great civic election campaign with many good candidates from which citizens can make the best choices.
