I have been associated with Stouffville for over 50 years having grown up in north Markham in the community of Dickson Hill. I have been living in ward 6 with my wife Debbie and sons Ryan, Sean and daughter Laura for 32 years. Over this time period I was involved with minor hockey, soccer, baseball and Beavers.
My professional career has been in sales management. My 25 plus years of experience was gained by working for multi-national companies such as Labatt’s, Robely International and World Kitchen (Corelle dinnerware). I currently have a retail consulting company that advises manufactures on listing their products on on-line retail platforms.
I was first elected to Council in 2003. Since day one I have made the concerns of constituents my number one priority. The biggest challenge that I have seen on council over the past 15 years is integrating development into a small-town setting.
Negotiations, patience and persistence have been my best qualities in dealing with the issues that have confronted the town and residents.
