Well here we go again! I would like to thank everyone in my Ward for the opportunity to serve you for another four years. I hope to live up to your expectations. I have enjoyed the last seven years serving the ratepayers of Ward 5 Erskine South-Warden. 

Wow time flies when your having fun.  I have learned many things along the way but most of all, that we live in the best County in Alberta. (I actually already knew that, it was just confirmed by my time on council). We still have our problems but nothing we cannot handle if we work together. I do look forward to meeting those challenges along with my fellow Councillors, if we work as a team there is no challenge we cannot overcome. Every member of a team should bring a different talent. I feel we have that diverse talent to meet that challenge head on.

My lovely wife Lori-Anne is a Registered Nurse working in Stettler. We have raised our four wonderful children in the Erskine area. We could not have asked for a better place to work live and play. The community that we live in is truly the heart of Alberta. Life has a way of moving on, this year we welcomed out first grand baby. I still think we are way to young to be grand parents but that is how life is meant to be.

I was born and raised in the Erskine area. I learned to get along with others as I was the youngest of eight, and there was lots of discussion and okay arguing along the way. We did learn respect is important and that strong sense of volunteering is great because a community is what you make it. After graduating from high school in Stettler I moved away to follow work in small towns all around Alberta, always comparing them to the Stettler area.

Nineteen years ago we moved back home. Now we live just south of Erskine, raising purebred sheep, chickens and spoiling our grand baby when we get the chance. I have now owned and operated East Central Auto Recyclers for the last fifteen years. My many experiences with different volunteer groups and businesses have given me the tools and talents {I hope} to meet the challenges of being your County voice at the table for the next four years.

Please do not hesitate to contact me and let me know what you are thinking. I truly look forward to serving you again.
