1. The biggest issue with Port McNeill is the lack of a town plan, or a town vision — how can we work towards something when there is nothing to attain but sameness? Healthy growth requires a vision.

2. I’m running for council because I am passionate about the place I live. I want to ensure decisions made regarding where I live are the right ones for everyone in the community.

3. A hard look at where we want to end up, with a realistic goal of how to get there. It all comes back to having a plan, a vision, and a goal.

4. I feel as a younger person who has grown up in, and has chosen to live my life out in Port McNeill, I have a unique perspective. I feel my age group needs a voice at the table. I’m interested in ensuring the longevity and sustainability of our town, and making it a place where everyone feels they have equal say. I value the guidance of people who have gone before, and I look forward to giving a fresh perspective. Thank you
