I was born and raised in Prince George. I have been involved in health and social services for 45 years. I currently serve on the provincial Poverty Reduction Forum and other social justice initiatives, and I’m the current Past President of the Union of BC Municipalities.
I have served as a City Councillor for 6 terms. I have served on numerous Council Committees. I am very passionate about our community and want to contribute to it being the healthiest it can be for all of our citizens. Good governance and community connections are essential to achieving that.
Priorities are established in all service areas at the same time definitely not done as in question #5. Infrastructure is top of mind, but will not be fully addressed without financial support from the senior levels of government.
- Economic Development
- City Image
- Road Maintenance
- Snow Removal
- Social Housing
- Downtown Revitalization
- Recreation (pools, arenas, etc.)
- Population Increase
With all of the attention given to this issue of late, I’m sure the policy will be reviewed by the next Council.
I think it was the right decision at this time. Once we have more experience with the issue, that fee structure will be reviewed.
I think it’s an appropriate place to start. With monitoring, these hours may suggest revisions.
Being honest and do everything with integrity. There are more and more studies how local governments can enhance transparency.
I think I have proven myself to be hard working, accessible, approachable, honest, team player and govern with integrity.
Continue with the successes of the last term. I am going to work diligently on the issue of Homelessness and Affordable Housing.
