Why are you running for City Council? 

A resident of Brandon for nearly 30 years and am currently employed in the corporate office of a financial institution that serves Brandon and Western Manitoba.

Before starting a new career, I spent 25 years as a broadcast journalist, including 23 seasons as the play-by-play voice of the Western Hockey League’s Brandon Wheat Kings.

I have been involved in many community organizations over the year, many of which were sports or recreation related.

During my first term (2018-2022) as Councillor for Ward 6, I served as Chair of the Keystone Agricultural & Recreation Centre Board of Directors, Co-Chair of the Poverty Committee, and a member of the Grants Review Committee and Building Standards & Bylaw Compliance Committee.

In addition, I am currently serving as Deputy Mayor and a member of the Downtown Wellness & Safety Task Force.

Some of my priorities for next term (2022-2026) will include:

  • Increase economic development in the downtown core through increased usage of incentives such as tax increment financing (TIF).
  • Explore providing financial incentives (rebates) through the Development Cost Charges (DCCs) bylaw that would reward those who provide infill, lower environmental impact and provide active transportation and community infrastructure.
  • Exploring additional partnerships between the City of Brandon and First Nations and promoting economic reconciliation.
  • Working with community members and organizations to continue to address the multi-faceted issues in downtown Brandon including championing an Indigenous Healing Centre.
  • Determining if there are ways for Brandon Transit to become more efficient and rider-friendly and how Active Transportation opportunities fit into the overall movement of people in the City of Brandon.
