Like more than half of the residents of the Comox Valley, I chose to live here in preference to the place where I was born.  There is no place like this district and I am grateful to be able to share in everything it has to offer.

During the time I have lived here, I have demonstrated my gratitude through voluntary community service.  That service includes acting as pro bono legal counsel to the Union Bay Historical Society, owner of the iconic Union Bay Post Office and Museum, for the past four years.  For three years, I have served as a director of the Sid Williams Theatre Society and now serve as its president. I am also a proud member of the Courtenay Rotary Club.

When knocking on doors during this campaign, voters have made it clear to me that their primary concern is for the preservation of the Baynes Sound ecosystem. I wholeheartedly share their concern, and pledge to take the lead in finding solutions for the pollution of its waters and shore line. In particular, I believe there is no time to be lost in identifying an achievable and effective liquid waste management system to stop the sewage that now enters Baynes Sound every day.

My law practice of three decades has always focused on the needs of small business owners. I believe that small business is the backbone of our local economy and my efforts on the part of small business owners will continue regardless of whether I am elected or not.

Holding political office should not be a personal retirement plan. And, it should go without saying that the office holder’s decisions should not be based solely upon political survival. I offer voters an alternative approach, an applicable professional background and a proven track record of dedication to the community.
