Q: What was your primary motivation to seek elected office?
I want to see council become a single team with one goal to do what is best for St. Albert and its residents.

Q: What skills and experiences have prepared you for this office?
I have run my own business for years and through my project management experience have acquired a skill set that makes me an asset to create and work with teams of various individuals.

Q: What do you think are the most important issues to the community?
Council has not been coming together as a single team. They have been much too free with spending tax dollars. There is no transparency or mechanisms in place to inform the public on projects.

Q: What specific goals will you work to achieve if elected?
I would like to determine what role I could perform to help facilitate team building. I would then focus on reducing spending and analyzing the budget. There are also huge projects that need attention and specific needs for seniors and youth that don’t seem to get enough attention.
