Directorial Candidate Area A

 

The years I served in the forces greatly enhanced my leadership skills teaching me how to set, achieve and maintain objectives, how to analyze and interpret situations, how to form concise plans of action and to monitor rapidly changing situations and adapt accordingly.  My values and beliefs developed over the years are honesty, integrity, fairness, transparency, family and community.  I believe strong open communication with all concerned parties is the foundation for sound decision making.  The world is changing at a pace that requires a leader who has the ability to look beyond the present and into the future.  The community needs a leader that will serve as a guide, manage data, seek information, opportunities and resources.  A leader who will carefully analyze, plan and consult with community.  A leader who takes clear concise action for the betterment of all.  I’m that leader!

Directorial Candidate Area A

I have enjoyed this Election Campaign, receiving feedback and connecting with residents from Elkford to Morrissey through telephone discussions, visits and events.

With your support, we achieved a 22% decrease on the RD portion of your taxes through sourcing new revenues. Upper Elk Valley residents are supportive of the addition of fire services and I was able to lower the costs by 40% to address concerns with the introduction of this service.

I will reduce fire service costs in Hosmer and establish Fire Service for areas south of FAR and Elkford. In speaking to Hosmer residents, they are excited about the addition of a new baseball field and enhancing their heritage sites.  I was successful in short-listing the Millennium Trail from the City of Fernie to FAR as a RDEK project and will continue to support the FAR Official Community Planning process.

West Fernie residents are engaged and are looking forward to a positive resolution to their infrastructure challenges.  I have the experience and government relations to develop a solution that works for all residents.

People appreciate the options in the Carriage Suite Bylaw as it allows them to build a suite for a relative or for rental income. The new Agriculture Land Commission Delegation Agreement enables the division of a piece of property for their child.
