Bill and I moved to this area to raise our family in a safe, rural community in
Over the last 13 years we have developed many relationships and friendships in this
area. As I have heard from many people it really does take a village to raise a
family. I feel blessed we had the opportunity to raise our family here.
If elected, I will work diligently to make sure our municipality continues to celebrate
its history, farming, family owned businesses and the people who have all had a
part to make our community as promising as it is today.
I will guarantee that your voice is heard and will work to ensure that we have the
services and resources that we need to continue to be a successful community.

Labour Community Advocate Program. This program empowers participants to become

I get to live my grass root labour values while making a difference in my community.
A community where everyone matters truly speaks to where my heart is.”
