I have – and always will – advocate that everyone should have an affordable home and improved quality of life.
LONG TERM CARE
Our population is aging and this issue needs to be addressed sooner rather than later and I intend to bring this issue to the forefront.
Our beautiful waterfront and newly renovated downtown are vastly underused and I want to see Belleville become more of a tourist destination.
WORKING FOR YOU
I think you’ll be hard pressed to find a councillor who will work harder than I do in this role. I give it my all and I promise you I’ll continue to do just that!
