I believe that politicians should be engaged and invested in their community and I am certainly that. I am an active volunteer, working with organizations in our Ward as well as at City Hall. I work as a tax specialist during tax time.

In other words, I’m a lot like you. With one difference: I want to represent you on Waterloo’s City Council. I have the time. I have the experience. I have the energy. And I have the desire to make a difference.

Serving on city committees has given me considerable insight into how City Hall works. It’s also shown me that city staff, council and citizens – working together in a spirit of collaboration – can make great decisions.

I’ve seen, first hand, what great results can be achieved when we get residents, politicians and City Hall staff working hard and respectfully, together. I’ve done it in my professional life and my life as a volunteer. Now, it’s time for me to step up and continue that collaboration on City Council.
