I have lived in Summerland since 1992 with my family and was transferred here with the RCMP as the Summerland detachment commander.

I retired in 2004 and have remained active in our community. I am committed to Summerland and will continue taking an active part on community boards as director on Parkdale Place Housing Society and chairman of the Summerland Charity Shop Society.

I belong to local clubs with memberships in Rotary, Masonic Lodge, Summerland Golf Course, Royal Canadian Legion Branch 22 and the Summerland Sportsmen’s Association.

The past three years as a Summerland councillor has brought challenges, rewards and a great experience. I am progressive. Summerland’s prosperity is vital, we need to keep moving forward.

To prosper we must attract young people, families, seniors and businesses. This means having entry level lots for young people and families to build their homes on, more senior citizens housing complexes and a busy downtown core for business to thrive.

I have management skills, budget administration experience and leadership abilities. I pledge to invest my energy, time and knowledge to be an effective mayor. For more information, refer to my website at
