for Squamish Council 2018
Build a better Squamish for a better tomorrow
I have attempted here to provide information about my education, my career and community & recreational events I have been involved in or have participated in. I have also attempted to provide some insight into my position on some current issues facing our community.
We live in one of the most beautiful settings in the world. Our community is strategically situated between a world class ski resort and one of the world's leading cities. This creates advantages for us as well as challenges.
I practiced law in Vancouver, Whistler and Squamish for almost 37 years. In that time I acted on behalf of clients in a wide variety of business and land transactions. This has required negotiating and dealing with representatives of all levels of government, First Nations, financial institutions and private sector corporations and individuals.
I moved to Whistler from Vancouver in 1978. In 1986 I moved to Squamish and have lived here since. In this time I have been involved in many community related charitable and recreational initiatives.
I was first elected to the Council of the District of Squamish in 2008 and re-elected in 2011and 2014. This will be my fourth election campaign. In my previous three Council terms I have served with three different Mayors. I believe my work experience, community activities and experience as a Councillor would make me a valuable part of the next Council.
