After thorough deliberation, I have decided that I will not be seeking re-election in the 2017 Municipal Election. It is a bittersweet announcement for me. It has been a great honour and privilege to serve the citizens of Edmonton as a member of Edmonton City Council for over 5 terms.
I want to take this opportunity to thank my family and the North East Edmonton community for their years of support.
One of my many milestones during my time on Council that I am most proud of is my strong relationship with my community that I have served.
I believe I have brought a voice that represents the people of North East Edmonton to City Council. My background in business, industry, and farming has informed the way I lead and serve as a Councillor and as a regional representative.
I have been a long time believer in supporting responsible and sustainable industrial development to then further our community’s programs and initiatives.
I have seen Edmonton grow and develop in extraordinary ways and I am proud to have helped champion Edmonton’s industrial goals.
I look forward to the future of the City and I am extremely proud of how far it has come during my time on City Council.
I will certainly miss serving Edmonton as a City Councillor, but I look forward to continuing my service to this great City in other capacities.
