County Council
Title: Erskine-South Ward Councillor
Phone: 403-741-9493

Well here we go again! I would like to thank everyone in my Ward for the confidence you gave me by being acclaimed. I hope to live up to your expectations. I have enjoyed the last three years serving the ratepayers of Ward 5 Erskine South-Warden. I have learned many things along the way but most of all, that we live in the best County of 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 win.

My lovely wife Lori-Anne is a Registered Nurse working in Stettler. We have four awesome and very busy children. Justina is 19 years old, working full time plus for a local farm family, she is looking forward to the next great adventure life may bring. Andrew is 17 years old and is in grade 12 at Wm. E. Hay High School. He referees and plays hockey and has an almost full time job at a local farm store. Alicia is 16 years old and is in grade 11, also at Wm. E. Hay High School. She loves her horses and most things academic. Our youngest, Isaac is 13 years old and is in grade 8 at Erskine School. He loves hockey, he also referees and plays. He is a Leafs fan, go figure…like father like son.

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. Fifteen years ago we moved back home. Now we live just south of Erskine, raising purebred sheep, chickens and our kids. I have now owned and operated East Central Auto Recyclers for the last ten 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.
