Being your elected voice on the town council would be an honour. My family is extremely committed to Okotoks, where we volunteer and attend many local events. Our kids participate in many activities and enjoy the walking paths and parks. We do not just live in Okotoks — we truly feel part of the community.
It is crucial to create a community that values all its members and to engage everyone —no matter their age, culture, ability, or orientation.
Okotoks has the potential to create a vibrant community where people can work, live, and play.
As a council member, I will actively listen, but also make the time to understand the concerns of the community and be collaborative and approachable.
We acknowledge Treaty 7 territory—the traditional and ancestral territory of the Blackfoot Confederacy: Kainai, Piikani and Siksika as well as the Tsuu T’ina Nation and Stoney Nakoda First Nation. We acknowledge that this territory is home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3 within the historical Northwest Métis Homeland. We acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit who have lived in and cared for these lands for generations. We are grateful for the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today and those who have gone before us. We make this acknowledgement as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we reside on or are visiting.
