I have run small businesses in Salmon Arm for 38 years.
I served terms as councillor and mayor. I served for several years on the board of Okanagan University College, mostly as chair. During my council years, Salmon Arm had the largest amount of building ever seen, only surpassed a couple of times since.
We created a comprehensive long-term financial plan and a new Official Community Plan which still forms the basis of the current plan 20 years later. We also created a strong financial position that made possible the municipal developments such as the arena and city hall.
