I am a semi-retired business owner who has spent the past 40 years managing and owning Transportation and Logistics companies based in Barrie. After moving to Barrie in 1980, I quickly discovered that it was one of Ontario’s best-kept secrets. It didn’t take long to decide that this was the place where we wanted to put down roots and raise our two sons. It is a decision that I do not regret. My success was a result of earning the trust and respect of our clients, employees, and suppliers. I intend to continue that philosophy in my role as Councillor so that all stakeholders are heard and represented. Barrie has been good to my family and me. It's time to give back.

It matters that solutions be implemented to assist those less fortunate become self-sufficient.
It matters that better employment opportunities exist locally.
It matters that you receive value for your property tax dollars and that they are spent wisely on the needs of all, rather than the wants of a few.
Safe neighborhoods, clean, well-maintained parks, and pothole-free roads should be a priority for any candidate. Below are just some of the things that I will work on your behalf to achieve.
Everyone has something that matters to them. I would like to hear about what issues mean the most to you.
