I don’t think it will quite hit me until the first orientation meetings this week…. but I am extremely honoured and excited to have succeeded in this campaign. I will be keeping this website and my Facebook page up so that you can continue to access me through it and find out about the issues happening in Port Alberni. My own greatest pleasure is to give people information that they find useful, whether it is about computers and video projects at my work at VIU, weather info at Alberniweather.ca, or now city info as one of your councillors for Port Alberni, that will be my biggest goal and I am very excited to have the opportunity to do so,
So! With that in mind, here is the info of the day!

I am very excited to be working with what I think is an excellent team of councillors and Mayor. And I want to thank John Douglas and Wendy Kerr especially for their great work in their time on council and as Mayor.
The road bridge question failed by 57% voting against. I Hope that means it is time to talk about a much more affordable and potentially beautiful foot and bike bridge instead!
Congratulations to all the candidates who ran.
Also important is the referendum on the Sproat Lake Marine patrol, which City and all Valley residents participated in. It passed easily.
And finally, the School District.
I am very honoured to be one of those select few. Please, stay engaged, keep asking and demanding questions. Demand them of me and all of our elected officials. Democracy isn’t just voting on voting day. It has to be a Full part of our lives every single day for it to work best.
Thanks you for sending me on this journey. Four years from now, we will see if I’m still thanking you 😉 but I know we will be in an even better place than we are now.
Happy Sunday Port Alberni!
