Spruce Grove – Stony Plain area deserves someone who is ready to stand up for what we need.

I am excited to be seeking nomination to represent you as the next NDP candidate in Spruce Grove – Stony Plain.

I have seen and heard from many in our communities that they are struggling and facing challenges.  While these challenges are both old and new, they all stem from poorly written or outdated policies.  I have witnessed first hand the effects of these policies on my family, my businesses and most importantly my community.

Albertans need leaders who will listen and work with them to bring forward sustainable, achievable, and affordable policies.

23 plus years as a civil engineer, 15 plus years owning and operating a business, and 4 years as a city councillor has given me extensive experience in budgets, financial statements, water, sewer, storm water, road construction, residential, commercial, & industrial development, the role of governance, inter-municipal relations, by-laws, policies, social & economic development.  All great assets to bring financial responsibility to Albertans.

Some are asking me “you own businesses, how can you represent the NDP?” I tell them that I run my family and my businesses in the same manner as the NDP.  With compassion, understanding, compromise, good communication and most importantly making sure we are financially responsible now and into the future.  This is how the NDP built much needed schools and hospitals, started plans for an updated relevant curriculum, a universal child care program, a climate leadership plan and so much more.

I grew up watching my parents run successful businesses.  What I learnt is that most of this success is due to community connection.  Volunteering, supporting community and doing for others is a great way to benefit the greater good while having a successful business.

I am ready to utilize my skills as an engineer, entrepreneur, city councillor and community leader to strengthen our region and bring forward change that will benefit all Albertans, especially Spruce Grove – Stony Plain.
