For the RECORD!

"I am committed to managing change responsibility:  As we grow, we must ensure that we never lose sight of the big picture.  I believe that both my political and my business experience will prove a tremendous asset when negotiating new commercial applications.  Savings, by joining with other municipalities, have already been demonstrated through the amalgamation of our joint purchasing agreement and our reciprocal library protocol.  Positive change will improve our community.

As your councillor, my goal is to produce a budget that will meet our needs while still being as fiscally conservative as possible."
