A resident of Mono for 31 years, I was an airline pilot for 47 years and recently retired as a Captain with Air Canada. I have volunteered on many community projects in Mono for years and I now have the time to serve on Mono Council. I have made a point of keeping current and engaged with Council and with Mono issues. I’ve always been interested in municipal politics and in serving my community by becoming a Councillor because I realize we are building on the actions of our predecessors, and I feel it’s important to give back to the community. I want to be a positive, open, and approachable representative for taxpayers and residents.
Mono residents are concerned about bylaw enforcement, noise issues, road conditions, high-speed internet access, the impacts and restoration of gravel pits, increased recreation opportunities, traffic safety, protecting natural resources, support for farmers, and future growth.
My platform has five key words: respect, protect, preserve, communicate, and bylaws. I have been a strong advocate for respecting residents’ rights to peacefully enjoy their property, as well as protecting and preserving our natural environment. I’d also like to see more accessible citizen engagement and open lines of communication to Council members. I support increased bylaw enforcement, high-speed internet, more recreation, improved traffic safety, and support for local business, and a recognition that we have a mix of rural and urban residents with different concerns.
As a candidate in the October municipal election, I am asking for your vote. I’d like to bring an open and progressive perspective, and a strong voice, to local governance, but also a willingness to make decisions with public consultation and community outreach. Mono is a great community and I do believe that together we can make it even better.
