I have been a resident of Lasqueti Island for 48 years, with 46 of those engaged with local politics as a member of our original OCP Committee, 16 years as fire chief, and 25 years on the Island's Trust APC.

I am running for my fifth term as regional director for Area E.

qathet Regional District has gone through big changes in the past few years and I think my steady hand will be an asset on the new board.
