It’s the need for a better process for decision-making by city council that has motivated me to enter my name for this election. Effective leadership includes the ability to bring people together in working towards a common goal. This needs to be an inclusive approach which allows people to voice their questions,concerns and objections, especially for major city initiatives.

Salmon Arm cannot continue to have those big public blow-ups that have occurred in the past. The divisions in the community this creates and the damage to the business image of Salmon Arm are just too costly.
