WHY I JOINED OurNanaimo: As a second generation Nanaimoite, and living and working in the downtown all my life, I am greatly concerned at the deterioration of our core, and with a Council who does not seem to care. As a former Councillor and Regional Director I know we can do better in our selection of Councillors, and I am committed to continuing to work to that end.

EXPERIENCE: Former City Councillor and Regional Director. Born in Nanaimo. Primary career in Income Tax Consultation starting in 1969. Downtown resident and property owner.

  • Child Development Director since 1988
  • Many other community involvements
