Summerland is a town with so much potential. I would enjoy the opportunity of working with like-minded people in bringing Summerland to the forefront in the Okanagan. I’ve owned and managed businesses for over 35 years, giving me a solid understanding of people and business. I have been involved with the Summerland Merchant Committee, Earth Week Committee, Movies in the Park and was instrumental in getting the Friday Night Street Market on Victoria Road. Council should be used as a tool to promote these ideas and encourage the growth of our community. I have learned listening is the only way to really understand and the best way to communicate. Council is a tool for the people and our aim should be to make the population of Summerland proud of their community and enjoy their involvement in helping our town grow and prosper.
