I have been a resident in Harrison Hot Springs for over 35 years. I care very strongly for this town as did my late wife Jacqueline.

Jacqueline and I were very much involved in this community for many years and committed ourselves to helping others through voluntary involvement. When Jacqueline passed away I continued to raise our son and committed myself to making Harrison and its community a safe, clean and enjoyable environment to live, visit or vacation in.

Now all grown up my son Matthew and daughter-in-law Alja have blessed me with three BEAUTIFUL grandchildren whom give me the motivation, drive and dedication to provide them (not only as mayor but as a grandfather) with a beautiful functioning community.

I am hoping that if re-elected I can do the same for you, your family and your friends.

Over the years I have involved myself in many of our communities clubs including the Lions and Rotary. I have also been involved in volunteering on many fund raising projects.

I worked for the school district 76 and 78 as a bus driver.

I have coached indoor soccer and created the outdoor soccer league. I have always volunteered my time on field trips for the children of Harrison.

I have served on council from 1993-1999 as councillor.

2000-2005 as councilor.

2005-2008 and 2011-2014 as mayor

FVRD director for two terms.

During my term on council I created a relationship for the benefit of Harrison with the MLAs and the Ministers. i believe in an open door policy.

I would like to continue supporting and serving the community and residents of this village.
