Your Name:

Why are you running for Lacombe City Council? 

I am running for Lacombe City Council to continue to provide good leadership and to help guide the City through the next few of years. My hope is to maintain our small town feel while we go into the next phase of our community's growth as a small city.

What do you hope to achieve in office, if elected?

If re-elected I hope to continue the commercial growth we have seen in the last few years. I support further change to our downtown area while still maintaining our unique feel.

I will work to have CPR clean up their right of way, slow down the trains (85km is too fast) and stop the train whistles within our community.

The Bio Refinex and Canadian Tire projects will be a focus of mine. We must keep the pressure on these developers to get their projects started or give us back our investment into the projects, this has gone on long enough.

I will continue to search for effective and affordable ways for recycling and disposal of our garbage. We must have a program that works and truly recycles and is not designed to just make us feel good while sending the majority of the material to the landfill. This is a large cost for us so we must be focused on getting the best value for our dollars.

Utilities will continue to be a focus of mine. We need to have sewer and water systems that are the safest and most efficient possible. The City must make sure our citizens are getting the services they deserve at a reasonable cost. 

Our parks and playgrounds are an important part of our community. We need to maintain and expand these facilities as the city grows and our needs change. These parks and playgrounds need to be inclusive with features that can be used by all. 

Why should Lacombe residents vote for you?

A vote for me is a vote for dependability. I will be there to represent you, the citizens of Lacombe, because this is my only job and I'm here for you.
