Age: 36

Occupation: account executive

PoCo resident for: nine years

Campaign funding: self-funded

Previous community service: I have volunteered my time coaching my son with PoCo Soccer and PoCo Minor Baseball.

If elected, what steps would you take to improve housing affordability in PoCo?
I would push for re-zoning our residential lots to allow multi-dwelling units, coach homes and laneway homes. We should also be looking at more co-operative housing projects throughout the city.

What do you hope to accomplish as a city councillor?
I am looking to help our youth development and assist them in future success. To help the small businesses in our community to thrive. I want to celebrate PoCo’s diversity with more festival-type celebrations.

What do you believe is the biggest issue facing PoCo?
Lack of support for our small businesses and safety within the community. More so with our traffic control.

Would you change the mayor and council’s pay and why?
I feel being the forefront of our city, the mayor and council deserve the compensation set out. We just need to do the job they are set to do.
