Let’s Build A Better Community Together

It has been an honour to serve the residents of McNab/Braeside over the last four years as one of your Councillors but it has also proven to me that effective leadership starts at the top. That’s why I’m running to be your next Mayor. I believe that we can accomplish so much when we work together collaboratively as Council, staff and the broader community. It’s time to get to work to build a strong, inclusive and sustainable McNab/Braeside where everyone has a place at the table and the Township truly works for and on behalf of its residents.

My Vision

McNab/Braeside is a strong community where our unique character and distinctive history is preserved and enhanced, while we foster growth and economic development to keep our communities sustainable and competitive into the future. Where we encourage responsible development while keeping close attention to the necessity of environmental stewardship. Where present and future generations can enjoy the immense beauty of our natural environment from the Ottawa River to White Lake and the Burnstown Beach. Where people can raise a family and contribute to the numerous small businesses that call our township home. And where our people can be more involved in the important decisions that affect them and their families.
