Councillor has lived and worked in community for 28 years

For those of you who may not know me, I have lived and worked in the community for the past 28 years. My wife and I have raised and schooled four children here. I am currently semi-retired, so have the time to devote to council business. This past summer I worked for the BC Wildfire Service as a contractor supplying water to the fire lines. I was previously elected to Council for the term 1996 – 1999. Having served in a prior term, I feel I can be effective on council right out of the gate.

I have a passion for this community and believe we live in one of the best localities on earth! In terms of priorities in the community; continued infrastructure upgrades (roads, sidewalks, etc.); overall economic prosperity (maintain and improve business core, encourage new housing development in areas that can be in-filled and expanded from the core of the existing village development); and community security and safety.

I feel I have a good knowledge of the community, experience in successful business and have previously demonstrated engagement with local and regional groups.

My overall broad experience will assist the Mayor and council to move the village of Keremeos forward for the next four years to the year 2022.

This community has great potential and I look forward to being a part of that prosperity.
