Are you associated with or running as part of a slate? If so, which one?

No. Independent

Do you live in the municipality where you are running, and if so, for how long? If not, what is your connection to that community?

Yes. 37 years

Retired for 9 years from Federal and Provincial governments

Tell us about your previous elected and/or community experience.

Langford Councillor since 1992 and CRD Director since 1997

Why are you running? What’s your motivation?

Residents want to have their say and be listened to. I want to be their representative on Council. Council needs a code of conduct, bylaws for tree retention and dust mitigation. I think people want to hear from all their elected representatives not just the mayor. A code of conduct would help to restore civility to the table.

What are your top three issues?

1. Institute a Strategic Plan

2. Pass a Code of Conduct

3. Focus on environment and climate change.

What’s your vision for your community in 25 years?

Have Langford continue to be a great place to live, work and play, with a diversified and a robust economy and lots of greenspace.

What’s one “big idea” you have for your community?

Introduce a strategic plan.
