It’s more important now than ever to Think Global and Act Local, to understand the interdependency between all, and contribute as stewards of the planet. Our opportunity is for BC to be recognized as world leaders balancing economic growth, social support and environmental sustainability. The time is now to put green principles to work! Let me be your voice; the voice of the community and stand up for you in Victoria!

We have challenging issues that require effective solutions while being fiscally responsible. These solutions won’t be realized by spending more tax dollars. They’ll be achieved by working together, united as a community with common goals. With 17 years volunteering in this community and 30 years of professional problem solving experience, together we can break the trend of inadequacy and inaction. It’s time to do the right thing and do more than just vote; it’s time to take a stand and be involved, time to reject the status quo, embrace science, reject polarizing ideas that you have to choose between the economy or the environment, and it’s time to reject the idea of vote splitting because only by working together can we stop the erosion of our democracy.
