I have been an educator all of my adult life promoting the well being of those in my classes. I am willing to move to new responsibilities should I been given the honour of representing Chilliwack as its Mayor. I too am ready for a bit of change.
I value autonomy. Everyone has the right to make decisions for themselves. And, in order for the citizens of Chilliwack to chose who represents them there needs to be a good diverse list of candidates to choose from.
I have a vision of Chilliwack’s future that involves collaborating with as many of its citizens as possible. There are many members of our community that are not eligible voters, their voices and needs are important and deserve to be heard. The voices of Chilliwack expand beyond just the business community, they encompass a huge demographic and it is time we support every person equally.
Expect to see me around the neighbourhood.
I love the city of Chilliwack. I believe that part of love is service, and so I want to serve the interests of Chilliwack and those that live there.
I have children. How can I expect them to care about their community, and grow to be politically aware, if I do not live as an example.
I believe that Chilliwack is a diverse community. People from multiple cultures live in Chilliwack. The strengths and experiences of our diverse community should be supported and promoted.
I want to help build a better Chilliwack for all.
I want to help promote and encourage more prosperous economic growth, and share that with surrounding communities.
I want to help promote more integrated social service and community involvement.
I want to preserve our natural environment, traditions and heritage.
