Forty years ago I chose Ingersoll as a place to live and raise a family. Ingersoll has been good to me and my family but it can be better for you and yours!
Yes, I am an active member of our town's Facebook pages but what some people may not see is that I take the time to answer each direct message that comes to my inbox. From any person who needs clarification or answers to things happening in our town. I take hours of my own time to make sure there is transparency from our council to you. The success of every municipality relies on the sharing of information and 360-degree feedback.
Over the years I have contributed to different parts of Ingersoll like working towards restoring the IOOF building after the 1991 downtown fire and starting a free little library in front of my home on King St West to encourage simple and free community engagement.
I enjoy spending my time volunteering and getting to work with the inspired, motivated, and talented members of this community. From fighting against the proposed landfill and spending many Thursdays at the STICH community supper club, I have seen a promising and positive glimpse of what we can achieve.
I've spent hours alongside other volunteers to help build the Ingersoll Dog Park. To be honest, I don't even have a dog, but I could see the benefits that this dog park offered not only to our residents both animals and humans. This park helps to draw traffic from other towns to ours. At first, people may be coming for the park but then when here can spend time in our downtown and help with our local economy.
I am not done yet - this is just the beginning!
With your vote on October 24th, I promise to be a leader that works with you and for you! I cannot wait to encourage ideas and not jump to the word "no"! I aim to make practical, feasible, and calculated decisions with the support of the town council and the people of Ingersoll!
After all this election is more than just choosing people for elected seats. It's about who will best represent your voice and goals.
Let me do that for you!
