Title: Erskine-Buffalo Lake Councillor
Phone: 403-740-9551

I married Circun in June of 2008 and became an instant parent with 3 children, Mary, David and Amanda. Isabella joined us two years later.

We have a small farm north west of Erskine. I co-ordinate and enjoy competitive volleyball, kayaking, gardening, orchids and travel. The kids love their competitive dancing and Circun loves.

My nine years on council has given me many exposures: I am the voice of Q93.3 Talk of the Town for Erskine and other commitments include: member of Stettler Family and Community Support Services, past member of Stettler Waste Management Authority, Chair of Agriculture Services Board, Chair of Agriculture Services Board, current member of Buffalo Lake Management Team, Erskine Cemetery Board, Nevis Community Hall Association, and Knights of Columbus Tent Rentals. I have also worked numerous Casinos for the Erskine Rec Board, Nevis Hall and the Stettler Public Library.

I really want to move our community forward through implementation of the Erskine Concept Plan that the past council adopted unanimously. After consultation with Erskine residents, and after dollars and time taken to create this plan, we need to address concepts and get them implemented, such as to develop the new residential lots, begin surface water management and install a walking path along highway 835 in order to maintain legal status for the highway crosswalk. The realization of a water reservoir large enough to provide enhanced fire protection for Erskine and surrounding area with fire hydrants and a tank fill for fire trucks, agricultural and domestic needs is essential.

We need to bring to the forefront, a recreational vehicle dump and fill station. It is imperative to get resident’s cooperation to allow services and access for these improvements to take place for the betterment of the community. A budget and timeline will need to be established with the cooperation of council and administration.
