I recently had the opportunity to visit the above noted class in the local high school to hear from them what they thought was needed in the City of Lacombe. Very interesting and informative! Here is a photo of the class!
I believe there is a need to have more COMMON SENSE in our municipal government. I use common sense in my business everyday to ensure my clients get a great job without the big hassles of unnecessary extra expense on their projects. I am expecting this will be easy to do for me for our community. It is a logical way of thinking for me.
I intend to be APPROACHABLE during the campaign and after elected. I am hoping to leave this website running and will keep this website address in all communications.
As part of who I am, being OBJECTIVE comes easy. I understand a lot of how the city works and look forward to learning lots more. As I do, I will do my best to keep an open mind, listen effectively as you share your concerns and questions.
I am COMMITTED to this new part of my life. I love this community very much and what to see the best for it. I intend to be committed to resolve any issues, to provide input and good decisions to all things that come my during during my tenure as city councilor. I look forward to it!

Just last week our town became a city! Premier Ed Stelmach was one of the dignitaries to come to Lacombe. I had the honor of meeting him, introduced by one of his MLA’s Ray Prins who is a tenant in our building. Here is the photo!

In our visit to Tim Horton’s this morning, the placemat in the tray has this comment: “The best part about being in the community is being involved in it.” I really like that comment and this is part of what I believe in! It is easy to get involved if you want to and have some time. This is one way our communities grow and prosper! Kudos to all volunteers!
