Priorities

Looking after the basics 

Basic infrastructure is a critical part of a great City. I’m proud to have supported the rehabilitation of over 61 lane kilometers of roadways in Ward 7 over the past four years. I also advocated successfully for improved funding for sidewalks and parks in your neighbourhood.

My commitment to Ward 7 residents: 

  • increase accessibility in your neighbourhoods and improve pedestrian linkages 
  • continue to make meaningful progress on improving the quality of roads, sidewalks, back lanes, water and sewer infrastructure in your area and across the city
  • build on the work of Neighbourhood Traffic Reviews to improve traffic safety on busy corridors and local streets 

 

Prioritizing the future

Ensuring a bright future for Saskatoon has always been a priority for me. I support the Growth Plan, a strategy to ensure smart, sustainable growth for our city. I have successfully advocated for solutions that will help Saskatoon reach its GHG emissions targets and save residents money, and I was proud to co-present the city’s first ever Youth Climate Action Forum in 2019. New initiatives like the city-wide organics program offer much needed services to support sustainability and savings.

My commitment to Ward 7 residents:

  • keep pushing for greater efficiencies in City operations that will improve services, save money, and keep taxes affordable; in 2020, City Council approved the lowest tax increase in a decade
  • continue to prioritize initiatives to save energy, reduce waste, and keep Saskatoon on the path to a sustainable future

 

Taking care of our community

Saskatoon is a community that cares. I have supported investments in affordable housing, arts and culture, active transportation, and community safety in my time on Council. I have participated in traffic reviews to improve traffic safety in every neighbourhood in Ward 7, and I support the community-building recommendations of the Exhibition Local Area Plan. As a member of the Board of Police Commissioners, I have worked to improve resident engagement and community safety.

My commitment to Ward 7 residents: 

  • strengthen community wellbeing through partnerships and collaboration
  • continue to host annual Ward 7 town hall meetings and special events to hear directly from residents and respond to issues as they arise
