My goal is to work together to strengthen Cowichan on all levels.
I am honoured to perform the duties of MLA for a region as beautiful, as resilient, and as full of promise as the Cowichan, home to the most engaged, connected, informed and passionate people I have ever met.
My commitment to you is to work hard to support the incredible efforts of so many groups and organizations that are contributing to positive and community-building outcomes.
I truly think my role is to be ‘at the back of the pack’, making sure everybody can fulfil what they want to be doing in community. I believe that, when we create the structures that allow people to participate authentically in decision making, we make such good decisions!
In Cowichan, we have many challenges and needs. Among some of the pressing concerns are high rates of child poverty; a hospital that is in need of replacement; a river that struggles through longer and longer droughts; concerns over a proposed LNG plant in Saanich Inlet; and growing rates of homelessness and housing insecurity.
We will know we are making progress when people are doing better, and taking care of each other and the environment.
