I ran for council in 2002 because I was intensely interested in municipal politics. I ran for mayor in 2005 because my experience on council led me to believe I could bring balance to the position.
I believed Salmon Arm could take care of business and the environment.
It took three mayoral races for me to be elected as mayor but I never lost sight of my belief that great businesses and environment go hand in hand. This year we won an “Open for Business Award” and a “Community Excellence Award” for collaborating and looking after Shuswap Lake water quality.
