    Why I am Running for Okotoks Town Council

    I care about this community and the people that live here. Okotoks has been my home for over 30 years and there is nothing I want more than to see every resident succeed.

    Through my community work and personal life, I have witnessed the tremendous positive impact that policy can have on changing people’s lives. A pathway, bylaw change, natural space, skatepark; these all have the ability to increase someone’s quality of life. The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the value and importance that municipal services play in community health. I am dedicated to building upon the solid foundation this community has built to ensure all residents have access to the services and infrastructure they need for living a high quality of life.

    I believe that an engaged community is a strong community and will work towards ensuring residents feel connected to their town and have a sense of belonging. I believe in building an inclusive community where everyone has the ability to create the life they want to live. Okotoks is changing and evolving and so are the resident’s voices. There would be no greater honour than to hear your voice and what matters to you as you build your life here in Okotoks.

    Join me on October 18 so we can work together on building a resilient, accessible and vibrant community for everyone.

    In the spirit of reconciliation, I acknowledge that we live, work and play on the traditional territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy (Siksika, Kainai, Piikani), the Tsuut’ina, the Îyâxe Nakoda Nations, the Métis Nation (Region 3), and all people who make their homes in the Treaty 7 region of Southern Alberta.
