Previous community service: I am a supporter and advocate for local community events and have actively followed issues raised at council to know what is important to our community.
If elected, what steps would you take to improve housing affordability in PoCo?
Focusing on both the supply and demand side of the market. I would lead council in re-evaluating zoning bylaws to incentivize developers to add affordable housing stock to the marketplace and continue to support zoning that increases density in select areas.
What do you hope to accomplish as a city councillor?
Increase rental and non-market housing stock through zoning and developer incentives. Address congestion and mobility issues by advocating for better transit as well as improving other green transit options. Keep our neighbourhoods safe and clean by working closely with bylaw officers and the RCMP.
What do you believe is the biggest issue facing PoCo?
The growth of the region is putting increasing pressure on affordability in our community. This growth is the root of many other issues within the community.
Would you change the mayor and council’s pay and why?
The mayor and council’s pay are consistent with other similar-sized municipalities. I would advocate for the provincial government to establish standardized pay policy.
