Why I'm running: 

As a lifelong Northerner, I truly believe in service to our community and I know we can make all our families successful.

We can do much more to solve the high cost of living; we can do more for our seniors; we can support those in need with dignity through assistance programs, social housing and homelessness initiatives. And just as importantly, we can do more for our Aurora College while focusing on bring quality jobs and economic growth north.

Experience matters and I’m a progressive and energetic voice that works hard and will keep working until the job gets done.
