My philosophy as a Councillor is to remain accountable to the citizens that I serve. While, I believe that local representatives must be accessible to their constituents, I also recognize the need to be morally and fiscally responsible to the municipality as a whole. Decisions made by Council affect the community at its core, and the individuals that comprise that community.
