I was born and raised in Powell River and developed an active interest in our local government. Our world is changing rapidly and my generation is needed to step up and help with that transition.

Technology, demographics, economics, agriculture and lifestyles are just a few examples driving the changes in our area. Area B will have a new elected director for the first time in 31 years, and afresh voice is needed to carry on, a voice that will protect and promote our rural lifestyle.

If we wish to maintain this paradise, we need someone who understands this new age, and is well aware of the history that brought us here. I know the history, I know the area, and I know the people.

I will care for this community as I care for my family.
