Question: What is your occupation?

A: Presently retired, devoting full time to serving as Mayor of Cache Creek for several terms.

Question: What is your occupation?

A: The issues that are most important to me are ensuring the re-establishment of the landfill industry, which is critical to Cache Creek and the surrounding area. The jobs and revenues resulting from the landfill are vital to community sustainability.

Question: Which issues are most important to you?

A: I am working hard to ensure that the four-laning of highway 97 creates opportunities to enhance the commercial corridor.

We need to continue to improve the livability of the community by maintaining the lowest taxes in the region and the many village amenities that are affordable for everyone to enjoy.

Question: How would you address them?

A: We have faced challenges together as a community and I am so proud to work together to overcome these challenges. My passion for our community and the people who live here continues to grow.

Our recent age friendly survey has identified areas of focus upon which Council will work in the new term.

The Council was happy to support the recent playground initiative at Cache Creek Elementary School. I am optimistic about the opportunities that Cache Creek has in its strategic highway junction location. We have successfully lobbied to obtain the following grants: $1.4 million dollar wastewater treatment plant upgrade, $750,000 Quartz Road culvert project, and $150,000 flood mitigation study.

My connections and experience have ensured that Cache Creek’s needs are heard.
