What Is important to me
STRONG CHARACTER & VALUES
Integrity, honesty, and hardwork were an integral part of my upbringing and something which I continue to live by. If you cannot trust your MLA, how can you expect them to represent you well in government?
I believe in the value of community. I hold a strong conviction that we need to promote a vibrant business and industry sector with less government interference, care for the needs of residents and bring attention to the great work/development that is happening in the Peace Country, all while being fiscally responsible.
FREEDOM OF CONSCIENCE & SPEECH
We need to continue to fight for freedom to live in accordance with our beliefs and values; to have liberty of conscience. Families need to be strengthened and restored to place of value and trust.
I believe that each person, regardless of what they believe, should have the opportunity to be heard and not be disheartened by a government that only appears to listen to lobbyists or special-interest groups. An MLA needs to have the courage to stand up for what the residents believe and take accurate representation seriously.
