"I was elected Mayor of St. Catharines in 1996 and served for three terms (9 years), and since then have served a further three terms (12 years) as your Regional Councilor.
My goal has always been to represent St. Catharines effectively, using all the knowledge I have gained in over 20 years of government service. While the past four years has been a challenge, I am proud of what has been accomplished, as new initiatives or previously planned projects.
While I could step away and let others share the load, I want to be part of the future and to serve our citizens, staff and fellow councilors with integrity, respect and honesty."
