Why I'm running: 

I am proud to be a Northerner. We are an ambitious and optimistic people who face tough challenges head on and create opportunity for ourselves and our communities. We need a government that shares that same spirit, that is committed to investing in Yellowknife right away and that will work to get our economy back on track.

It’s no secret that Northerners face many challenges in the future. Our cost of living continues to rise, jobs are being lost to the south and many of our residents are looking for opportunities elsewhere in Canada. I want to bring a new vision to our government that makes investing in our communities its number one priority and that works hard to stay accountable to you.

I’ll represent Kam Lake with a new plan for our economy that creates jobs, economic growth and lowers our cost of living. I will fight for a healthier and vibrant Yellowknife by taking action on homelessness and addictions, investing in municipal infrastructure and supporting education, arts and culture. And my plan commits to something that Northerners are asking from our legislature – open and responsible government that is accountable to you.

I’ve made listening to your concerns my number one priority and I have built a plan that works for you.
