For over a decade, my wife Jennifer and I have been raising our young family in Ward 3. In speaking with many of our family, friends and neighbours in our community over the years, it turns out that we share many of the same concerns about its future.
It’s my perspective that the people at City Hall have been spending too much time, effort and tax dollars addressing their priorities, rather than ours. It’s time for a change in the style of leadership at City Hall. It’s time to get Council working for you in your neighbourhood!
I’ve decided to run for City Council because I have the right combination of skills, determination and commitment to our community to provide you with the best possible representation at City Hall. As it’s time for the city to make important choices about our future, I want to make sure that your thoughts and concerns are incorporated into every stage of the decision-making process.
I hope to earn both your trust and your vote to be your next City Councillor on October 22nd. I look forward to talking with you over the next couple of weeks to hear your thoughts as to how we can work together to help make our great city, even better.
My Background and Experience
Please click on each heading below to reveal more details.
After moving here from London, Ontario in 1986, I attended Lord Elgin (now Robert Bateman) High School. Since that time, I’ve somehow managed to live in every ward in the city.
My wife Jennifer and I met here, were married here and we bought our first home here in Brant Hills in 2008. I have spent the last decade happily juggling the demands of Jenn’s shift-schedule as a Police Officer with my own, while also finding time to enjoy being a father to our two children and an uncle to nine more.
Over the last 25 years, I have worked with businesses of all sizes, including several multi-national businesses in the finance and energy sectors, where I have held key senior leadership roles at the Manager and Director levels.
I have gained significant experience across many different disciplines that make me well equipped to effectively represent you on council, having worked in Business Development, Operations, Contract Management, Auditing, Project Management, Information Technology, Business Analysis, Energy Management and Finance.
In these roles, I have obtained relevant experience successfully managing several multi-million dollar annual budget processes, negotiating contracts, performing business case analyses, and leading and communicating change management efforts both within and outside the organizations I’ve worked for.
My interest in public service began in 1984 when I served as a Legislative Page at Queen’s Park. While studying Economics at Queen’s University, I was elected to the executive of several youth political organizations, serving as Vice-President as well as Provincial Policy Director. In these roles, I’ve gained a practical understanding of how to develop public policy and how to bring people together to come to an agreement over contentious issues.
Since moving to Burlington, I have volunteered my time to support the Burlington Air Cadets, The Royal Canadian Legion, The Burlington International Games and Habitat for Humanity. I have also enjoyed my time engaging with the youth in the community as a soccer and football coach and as a frequent volunteer at my children’s primary school.
Let's work together to ensure City Council keeps working on our priorities
Burlington is a pretty great place to live, work and raise a family. Having said that, City Hall could do so much more to support you and your family in our community. We need to take a conservative, responsible approach to providing the services your family needs right now, and in the future.
