Why I'm running: 

I am running for MLA to ensure the residents of Nunakput have a voice in the Legislative Assembly. Nunakput is in need of strong, effective leadership that will work in each of the four communities while thinking globally. Moving forward I would like to see issues such as the much needed housing, education, employment, well-being and climate change (shore erosion, melting permafrost affecting infrastructure) re-evaluated and addressed with involvement of our regional resources.
