As a councillor, I will work for and listen to the ideas and concerns of our rural
residents to ensure that their lifestyle is protected. Property rights, development of
hamlets, farms, ranches and acreages deserve strong representation. Consideration
must be given to industrial development and how it impacts the rural way of life.

Constituents throughout Yellowhead County have approached me and discussed their
concerns. Many have expressed a need for change within council. Through
discussion it has been brought to my attention that Yellowhead County undervalues
its municipal partnerships. Fiscal responsibility and management of project spending
needs review.

For the past 3 years I have worked for Alberta Agriculture and Forestry during the fire
season. With this position I have travelled extensively through the region and have a
clear overview of the roads and industrial activities throughout the county.

Previous public service includes 30 years RCMP and 6 years Division 4 councillor
including 2 years in the roll as deputy mayor and 1 year vice chair of District #3
composed of 13 surrounding counties.

I have the energy, background, and leadership skills to provide strong representation
to Yellowhead County.
