Since 2014, I have had the privilege to serve Ward 1 residents as Councillor for the Town of Tecumseh. With my background in municipal public works, my record of professional experience and community engagement can be put to extensive use to keep Tecumseh a great place to live.

I am ecstatic to have been a part of the Town's progress over the last four years and to have been acclaimed to serve a second term as Ward 1 Councillor from 2018-2022. You can continue to count on me to deliver responsive, reliable and responsible town oversight, decision-making and advocacy on your behalf.
