VISION

It's time for a new kind of leader. 

Less talk, more action.

During my time as a Kamloops City Councillor, I've taken an action-oriented, preventative and proactive approach. I've helped initiate extreme-weather cooling and warming centres, pushed for our municipality to get more involved in recruiting and retaining doctors and health-care providers, and ensured accessibility is at the forefront in decision-making. I feel strongly about many issues, but my biggest passion is getting things done. The areas below highlight topics I think have the biggest impact on everyone in our community.

CITY OF EQUAL OPPORTUNITY

Creating a city of equal opportunity means generating economic growth by supporting local businesses and job creation–keeping our talent at home.

It also means empowering entrepreneurs to create, innovate and build capital, and supporting service agencies and not-for-profit agencies which work hard to elevate others and open doors to possibility.

It means being innovative in our partnerships and asking how we can do things in a new way to ensure we are adaptable and responsive to an ever-changing world.
 

LIVABILITY

Livability includes creating an equal standard of living and quality of life for everyone. This includes access to employment, mobility and community enjoyment, creating a more inclusive city, removing physical and logistical barriers.

Part of livability is access to housing. Housing is the foundation of a vibrant and prosperous community and everyone deserves a safe space to call home. 

I will continue to advocate for the creation of housing for all residents, across the entire spectrum of need and exploring different ways to get there.
 

COMMUNITY

I'm proud to be part of this growing community and believe the only way forward is to move through some of the difficult challenges we face through conversation. The social issues we are experiencing are complex and will require a community solution. It will also require continued advocacy and partnerships with the provincial government, something I will continue to do through my role as an executive member with the Union of BC Municipalities. Communication and collaboration is the only way for us to move forward into the future together. It will also be key in reconciliation and maintaining strong relationships with Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc and members of the Secwépemc Nation.

I'm dedicated to working with community to build community. While I've outlined some areas I think are important for our future above, I really want to hear from you. Please take 3 minutes to complete this short survey and share your thoughts with me and the rest of the community.

These results will be shared publicly and inform my platform--which is a platform and vision for everyone.
