The community of North Vancouver has given me so much over the 30 years I have lived in North Vancouver. Over thirteen years of public service volunteerism in North Vancouver is a testament to my gratitude and commitment to this community. I would like to continue to give back by utilizing my very relevant subject matter expertise in project planning, management and business case analysis to provide a path forward for some of the most complex issues we face.

There is a lot I like about our City.What’s transpired on the waterfront is remarkable, the spirit trail and the Central Lonsdale necklace are popular and promote a healthy urban life style.The City Library is home away from home, school away from school and workplace away from workplace for many.

So why am I running for council?I am not convinced that Council has studied the details of some of the issues before making density decisions which has impacted the livelihood of the community we live in.My top priorities include traffic, affordability and public spaces. Traffic issues need to be studied in a comprehensive fashion and requires setting targets for idle time and wait time. Each time we review a major development proposal, we need to carefully examine what it will do to these targets, next to the development site as well as in major arteries across the north shore. We also need to look at the continuum of our community’s housing needs.Unfortunately, housing has become unaffordable for an increasing number of our residents.City council must do its part to bring different tiers of housing options for a range of residents including those who serve the public, young families and seniors.I am also in support of more public spaces: both indoors and outdoors.Like the 50-seat study hall in the city library, we should have work and study spaces available for public in other areas of the city – such as the marine drive area and Lower Lonsdale.I will also support the creation of additional smaller parks and plazas.
