“A council needs to be a team that can work together for the common goal of creating and maintaining a great community.”
I have a strong work ethic in business and I wear many hats; from labourer, human resources, janitor, developer to financier. One hat equally as important as the other, and working as a team with cohesion is the only way to be successful and to get the job done. Being a strong listener and taking the time to understand people is so important. With a full understanding of budgeting to keep costs down while not sacrificing quality and service; this is what I can bring to Callander. I have been a resident and taxpayer in Callander for 35 years. I have a love and commitment second to none for our community. I believe Callander is the jewel of the north; a safe community with wonderful opportunities. Citizens of Callander enjoy living on beautiful Lake Nipissing and all the amenities our community has to offer. However, they have a deep concern of higher property taxes like some of our neighbouring towns and cities. It will take a strong council team working together to accomplish keeping taxes low, along with finding savings in our annual budget. I thrive on finding solutions to problems, with great tenacity and do so to rival most. I will not make unattainable promises. What I will do is pledge financial responsibility, ingenuity and perseverance. Solutions are my objective, this I will commit to you.
