Community Involvement (Boards, Clubs, Organizations etc):
I enjoy coaching my daughter’s soccer team in Swift Current during both the indoor and outdoor soccer season. I have volunteered at the Lyceum Theatre and played in the Adult Rec Volleyball league. I am an avid sports fan. During the winter, my family spends a lot of time at the rink with figure skating and watching the Greyhounds and lots of time at the pool in the summer. I am supporter of the school’s efforts to build a new track / football field and enjoy taking in the Lions football games. When I worked for the Town I was a member of the Cemetery committee.
What has (or continues) to motivate you to step forward and run for Town Council?
I am running for Town Council because I want to keep the community growing and striving economically into the future. I believe in supporting our local businesses whether it is going to a movie, fixing a vehicle, getting a hair cut, or buying groceries. The town has many volunteers that work hard to promote it through events such as Winterfest and the Christmas Cove and I would love to be a part of it!
