Although this takes me away a lot, I attend many meetings electronically, by Skype or phone.

Even this next month, I will be in Northern Alberta helping to look after my grandkids while my daughter recovers from a medical operation.

Although I may not be physically in Cache Creek as much as I would like, my heart is and always will be.

I am always there when needed and still in contact with the Village Office multiple times per week.

My strength has always been in Finance and contract negotiation. I have been an integral part of every landfill contract negotiation and this history will be very important going forward over the next few years.

Over the past 29 years, I, along with many councils, have always acted responsibly with your money and I would like to continue to do that.
