Fifty-year resident of P.G. Spent last 35 years working in the forest industry. Spent the last 16 years on City Council.
I am running for re-election to continue working hard on behalf of the residents of Prince George. I have a strong reputation for asking the tough questions and will stand up for what I feel is right. I am hardworking and dedicated and would be honoured to serve another term on City Council .
Community safety. We are faced with a number of issues affecting community safety from organized crime, break and enters to used needles ending up all over town.
- Road Maintenance
- Snow Removal
- City Image
- Recreation (pools, arenas etc.)
- Social Housing
- Downtown Revitalization
- Population Increase
- Economic Development
I do not and that needs to be reviewed. The private sector staff are expected to work extra hours as salaried employees so should city staff
We can’t micromanage but need to ensure we have effective oversight. We also need to be better informed from staff regarding important issues instead of finding out front other means .
The fee is too high but I felt that my motion to reduce it from $5000 to $1000 was as far as I was going to get with the support of Council . To say that cannabis retailers would have to pay $5,000 for a licence when a pub or liquor store pays $265 was ridiculous.Yes I would support a legitimate business applying for a licence if they met our requirements
Yes I agree with the new hours. I put a motion on the floor at City Council forcing admin to expand the hours from 6 am to the new hours of 6 am until 9 pm
I have a strong record of being open and transparent. I encourage the City on a regular basis to make information available to the public. I am also a strong supporter of legislation that forces more disclosure to the public by all levels of Government. Transparent govt is what people expect and I will do all I can to live up to those expectations.
I’m a hard working dedicated Councillor that had worked with groups and individuals on many issues. I am open, honest and accessible and work for the residents, not for City Hall
Continue to work hard on community safety and low cost housing support.
