1. The number one issue continues to be how to build a new economy for a community that was for many decades reliant solely on the commercial fishing industry.  Our challenge has been to set the stage for economic revitalization through the building of strategic new infrastructure, and by building a collaborative local economic development agenda with our neighbours, the ‘Namgis First Nation.

2. First, we must continue to smartly operate our municipal government in a way that works to both maintain and carefully improve the quality of life for all residents of our island community.  And second, we must support the growth of a more stable and diverse businesses sector that will provide a wider range of goods and services to our residents and visitors alike.

3. I am a 7-year resident of Alert Bay who wishes to give back to the community where I live.  I would be a second term Councilor who has learned a great deal over a first three years in office.  I have served as Deputy Mayor and as the appointed Alert Bay representative to the Regional District of Mount Waddington.  My goals would be to work closely with Mayor Berry to complete projects that are already on the go, and to continue to seek all possible outside financial resources to implement a creative agenda of additional cost-effective improvements to our resilient community.
