Hello. I am a father of three who has lived in Alert Bay for the past ten years. I am originally from Calgary, and on the way here, lived in Fauquier, Surrey, Vancouver, and Parksville. I currently run a couple of small businesses and am completing my M.Ed. from Athabasca University. Over the past many decades I have generated a variety of experience that I expect will contribute to what I can bring to the council table. I’ve taught intermediate mathematics, managed a weekly newspaper, produced concerts, cooked, operated a produce store, and provided various levels of support for disabled individuals.
I have decided to run for councillor this time around to see if there is anything I can bring to the governance of Alert Bay. As yet I am not familiar with what issues are on the table for the incoming councillors, I also can not say what actions I will take as councillor. This, however, I can tell you: I will strive to listen to what people in Alert Bay care about and want as well as develop a constructive working relationship with the other elected representatives. I think that is all anyone can honestly promise.
