I am passionate about Nanaimo

What Nanaimo needs today

We must advpcate with the Provincial Government for a major expansion for the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital, a Cardiac Catheterization Lab and a full Cancer Treatment facility

Medical support for people in crisis and homeless

More long term care facilities for our frail and elderly

More GPs, nurse practitioners, nurses, techs and specialists to come to Nanaimo

More medical walk-in clinics

We must advocate with the Provincial Government to find solutions and support people with addictions, mental health issues and those who are homeless

Nanaimo is one of the fastest growing cities in Canada, let’s be the most desirable place to live, work and visit

Let’s welcome business to Nanaimo to bring more job opportunities to our residents

Take on more infrastructure projects that fix the underground utilities, add sidewalks and bike lanes, where it makes sense and is cost effective

Let’s make our city safer by reducing crime

Do as much as we can to advance Nanaimo’s culture of art,  entertainment and sports

Revitalize our downtown and waterfront

Bring more housing options and more affordable housing projects

Let’s make building and renovation permits faster and less complicated

Good government is vital, collaborate with fellow council members and support staff to get projects going,
