It is a tremendous honour to serve the residents of Aurora. Since first elected to Town Council in 2010, I have focused on two key commitments:
taking care of our community’s current needs and planning for tomorrow, so together we can make Aurora an even better place to live, work and play.
During my time on council I have demonstrated strong financial management of your tax dollars, a practical and common sense approach to the issues at hand and ensured the current and future needs of our community always comes first.
I, along with my wife Natalie and daughter Carley have called Aurora home for almost 20 years now. We moved from Muskoka to Aurora because we saw Aurora as a wonderful, vibrant place to live and raise our family. Through its parks and trails, programs and amenities and places to meet and engage in our community, Aurora has much to offer.
Prior to my role as Town Councillor, I gained valuable experience as a citizen member of the Built Heritage Advisory Committee (formerly known as LACAC) in the Township of Muskoka Lakes, as well as a citizen member of the Aurora Public Library Board from 2006 to 2010, where I also served as Board Chair in my final year.
In addition to serving as Councillor for the last 12 years, I also work as a Senior Director, Business and Retail Development, for a large retail pharmacy group where I interact with over 500 independently owned pharmacies and community pharmacists from across Ontario and Atlantic Canada.
For the past 25 years, I have served in various management roles as well as a business owner and have applied my business expertise and experience to help provide leadership, strategic vision, governance and a principled approach to council matters.
