working with community
Comox has been my home for 22 years. I’ve raised my family here and now I have the joy of watching my grandchildren grow up here. I know our community and I’ve seen and been a part of the changes. I respect the beauty that surrounds us, and welcome growth cautiously, knowing it can enhance our lives, while being mindful of who we are as a community.

Immigration pilot program helps drive economic growth in B.C.

B.C. has launched a new Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) Entrepreneur Immigration Regional Pilot that is focused on attracting entrepreneurs from around the world to establish businesses in regional communities. This will help meet the communities’ economic development needs and encourage investments outside urban areas, says the Province.

I will continue to commit my time, and focus my energy on improving how the Town of Comox contributes to a high quality of life for all it’s residents, today and tomorrow.  My ability to provide good governance is supported by experience on council, and a proven process of listening first, stating my views and building consensus.
