“I can’t believe this is my third term on council in the beautiful town of Victoria. I am enjoying my time on council, there is a lot to learn and a lot to do but I am up for the challenge. I encourage more residents to get involved in our beautiful community, whether it is on council or the various committees in the town who would love your support. I am very passionate about giving time to a great cause. I ran for council in hopes of initiating change and growth in our community and to give the perspective of a younger generation. I am working hard to ensure this is happening. I aim to be fair and to make the best decisions possible when it comes to our town and the residents in it.”
