It was an honour to have been appointed councillor of Mulmur Township in July. I have thoroughly enjoyed my involvement over the past months.
I have been a resident of the Township of Mulmur since 2013, residing in the Mansfield Ridge subdivision. My wife Sarah and I have chosen this community to raise our three children.
I am proud to serve my community as a Firefighter with the Rosemont District Fire Department, since 2016. I am in a very fortunate, and unique, position where I have the opportunity to see the people of our community at their absolute best and, similarly, during times of great need.
I attended Laurentian University and received a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and have worked for years in the field of Logistics. I bring forth a skill set that would prove beneficial to the role of Councillor. Employing my knowledge of environmental sustainability, fiscal responsibility, and the implementation of community service amenities would be a great asset in projecting and implementing community growth within Mulmur.
I believe that growth is inevitable. When we are responsive to our community needs, we can embrace potential community development and enhancements with a progressive mindset, whilst being mindful of the impact such development/enhancements will have on the environment.
There is a need to invest in our parklands for physical and mental wellbeing, just as residents have invested in Mulmur as a place to live and play. Similarly, we need to focus on completing the improvements to the North Dufferin Community Centre.
Any new and/or potential developments within our Township should be prepared to accept that they must contribute to the ideal of healthy community initiatives for current and future residents.
An effort needs to be made to make the availability of high speed internet more accessible to the residents of Mulmur. By improving connectivity and reliability, residents will have access to health care, education, and the option to work from home.
I strive for inclusivity and acceptance for all. I believe that, as a community, we must empower our members and allow opportunities whereby they see themselves as active agents responsible for change.
