I believe in the power of local government to solve problems and positively affect people’s lives.
As a 30-year resident of Ward One I know that our local parks, schools, libraries, places of worship and recreation centres are the anchors that make our community and its neighbourhoods wonderful places to live.
However, great communities do not occur by accident. They take effort. And, that is why I want to be your Ward One Councillor.
In the thirty years I have been proud to call Thornhill my home, raising a family and operating a business, I have made time to volunteer and give back.
