New Leadership Delivering Results for Our Community
I love our city. I tell people again and again, one of my favourite parts of a trip away is coming down the Pat Bay Highway and seeing the majesty of Victoria with its stunning background. It’s home.
The reason I’m running in this byelection is to ensure we have a better Victoria; a local government that listens and responds to all citizens.
People tell me “special interest groups seize the agenda”, and they feel their "voice is not heard if they disagree with positions formed at the council table”. Some people in the city reached out to me to say they feel they are “ridiculed and demonized” when they express and opinion". It’s time for a new voice at the council table that is respectful, reasoned and provides superior leadership. I am that voice.
Though you may know me primarily as a television reporter, anchor and talk show host, I have been involved in much more than journalism - and I am still involved in a number of community, provincial and national initiatives.
As the Executive Director (and prior to that as board member and volunteer) of a national cancer charity, I advocated for access to new therapies to treat patients and to support caregivers, family members and survivors.
Through my work as a volunteer and as board member at Lifetime Networks I helped raise money for this wonderful organization that supports people with diversabilities.
At RunSport, I serve as the Vice Chair of the society best known for staging the TC10K, my fellow board members, the race committee and I are thrilled with the growth of the race and the positive impact event has on the health of the community and our city.
My volunteer work also includes helping to raise money for many community groups including the BCSPCA, and the Canadian Cancer Society’s “Tour de Rock”.
I have the knowledge, the experience and the passion to work with others to provide good governance for a better Victoria.
