Experience (300 characters max) Have served 10 years as an Island Rec Commissioner.
I am running for re-election because I believe Island Rec provides many great services for our community and I want to see that continue.
Successfully operating the fantastic new Linde community playing fields. Hiring and keeping quality employees. Finding and delivering more programs to our older residents.

Fortunately I believe Island Rec is well run and that we are aware of these challenges. Consequently, none of these issues rise to the level of being urgent.
