I have really enjoyed working for the citizens of Cranbrook and therefore am announcing today that I will be seeking re-election as Mayor on November 15, 2014.

We are making good progress on removing barriers to business, on making Cranbrook more accessible for those with mobility challenges, on working towards a youth-friendly community, on improving roads and other infrastructure, on supporting the arts and multiculturalism, in beautifying Cranbrook, and in ensuring positive communications between the City and our residents. With the blessing of the community I want to see these improvements continue.

In the past two-and-a-half years people have been very kind. In 2012 I received the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medal for “Contributions to Canada.” In 2013 and 2014 I was pleased to be recognized by the people of Cranbrook with the Readers’ Choice Silver Award for “Favourite Local Politician” (Black Press) and was singled out by Cranbrook youth as being youth-friendly in their 2014 survey. While I am honoured by the recognition  what is important to me is the underlying messaging that we’re on the right track.

Working with staff, council and the citizens of Cranbrook, we have made significant accomplishments this term. Over the upcoming five months I am looking forward to hearing what the people think my priorities should be for the next four years and then delivering on them.

Together, let’s keep Cranbrook going and growing, forward!
