Council is made up of 7 individuals including the mayor. One person is equal to one vote, it will take people who are team players that put aside their differences and make decisions that are best for the community. I can assure you that I will continue to be a great team player on council.

The next four years will be critical in empowering businesses and driving economic development and recovery. Real economic development starts by helping individuals access the resources they need, encouraging investment and innovation, especially as we navigate our way out of the impacts of the pandemic. I will work with council to ensure that we have innovative ways to support individuals, families, businesses, and our community.

his council has approved a 10-year capital plan every year for the last 4 years, this plan currently looks like a wish list. We have also done a survey to confirm what residents think is most important to them. The reality is that there are no new infrastructures that donโ€™t come with a price tag. There are vast needs in our community but limited resources to meet all these needs. It is council's responsibility to set priorities. I will work with council to establish a solid 10-year capital plan that is a true reflection and a good balance of our needs in this community and our resources. I will also work with council to establish an asset management plan that shows all our assets in this city, their life cycle, and our succession plan for replacement in the next 20-30-50 years.

For the last 2 years, I have sat on the Capital Region Northwest Services Water Commission and have seen Fort Sask pay more than we should for water. As the chair of the bylaws and policies sub-committee, I fought to ensure Fort Sask gets a better deal. Although we do not yet have the best deal, there is a need for continuity to see this work through to ensure that Fort Sask residents are not at a disadvantage when it comes to their water rates.

I have been knocking on doors for the last few weeks since I declared my desire to re-run. I do not think door-knocking is something that should be done only during elections, that is why in the middle of this term I went out door-knocking to hear from you, the residents. As an elected official, it is our duty to represent the public, we can only duly represent the public when we hear your concerns and we have continuous dialogue. I can assure you that I will listen to your concerns and I will take action in addressing those concerns. I will begin a newsletter to inform residents of whatโ€™s going on in our city. I will continue to work with our community, whether you are a business, not-for-profit, industry, family, or individual. I will be here for you.
