These past few years have been a tremendous challenge for our community, yet we have emerged stronger and together we have accomplished a lot.
As your City of Kitchener Ward 6 Councillor, I have been instrumental in shaping the City's Strategic Plan towards positive and sustainable growth, which has been mindful of our environment and limited urban sprawl. I have provided advocacy for improved collaboration and cooperation with all orders of Government to tackle housing affordability and post-pandemic economic recovery.

With a proven record of being your advocate and representative on City Council, I will continue to put forward balanced ideas which help to improve our quality of life.
