I am excited to announce that I am seeking re-election to Port Coquitlam City Council for a third term. Over the past seven years I have truly enjoyed being a part of seeing our city continue to evolve into one of the best places to live and work in the Lower Mainland.

In a time where we have seen the overall cost of living increase dramatically, I am proud of the work we have done to keep Port Coquitlam tax increases the lowest in the region. As Chair of the Finance and Budget Committee I am also proud that while holding the line on taxes we increased resources in both the Fire and Police departments, commenced construction on a new 132 million dollar Community Rec Centre and witness a record number of rehabilitation projects to renew our streets and pipes in the ground.

If I have the privilege of serving on council a third time I look forward to continue my work on making sure the tax increases are kept in check so residents keep their money where it belongs…in their pockets. I also look forward to overseeing the revitalization of our Downtown and Northside business areas, plus work towards bringing more family-friendly festivals to the city.

Thank you for your ongoing support.
