Municipal Election 2011

Candidates enter the race

Candidates enter the race

As the Nov. 19 municipal election approaches, candidates for city council have begun to announce their campaigns.

The Observer is giving the candidates an opportunity to briefly introduce themselves to the community.


I have lived in Salmon Arm for 23 years. I am a recently retired Registered Professional Forester and also own Shuswap Consulting Services Ltd.

My commitment to this community has been demonstrated through my work and community service. This includes serving as a director and past board chair of SASCU, being a founding member of Shuswap Minor Football, coaching minor hockey, and my involvement in building Little Mountain Sports Complex. My experience in both business and government will be an asset. I believe we need to do more to promote business development. The only way we can maintain current tax rates is to encourage more business and population growth in the community.




I was born and raised in Salmon Arm and I have enjoyed watching our city grow over the many years I have lived here. This type of progress only happens through the hard work of our local government.

I would like to work with others to try and promote more industry and other retail outlets to move into our city. Also keeping in mind that we have to work in conjunction with the environment so we do not destroy our beautiful city. I have always been a supporter of any business that creates new jobs, as this keeps our economy going forward.




Living in Salmon Arm has taught me many things. Being a neighbour is about more than sharing a property line. Success in business is about the front line as much as the bottom one. As I watch my children grow, my business expand and my community evolve, I want to make sure we meet our obligations, and our aspirations.

There’s room for new thinking; for the dreams of young people, the needs of seniors, the prosperity of our community and the sustainability of our environment. With an open door, an open mind and an open heart, there’s room for us all.
