Why are you running?
"It is getting increasingly expensive to live in our community. Many are finding it difficult just to make ends meet. Therefore, prudent planning and responsible use of budgets is critical now more than ever. I believe my finance experience and business background would make me a prime candidate for the city councillor position."
What’s your No. 1 issue and why?
"I believe the most pressing issue currently facing us is affordable housing. Housing is a basic necessity and a foundation for living an enjoyable and productive life. When people cannot adequately afford shelter it leads to other issues such as increased crime and poor mental health, which negatively affects our community and decreases economic productivity. There is an issue when working people and pensioners that have paid into the system can barely afford shelter costs. Solving this issue is critical."
