1.  I have spent the last several weeks meeting with, and speaking to people from several different walks of life, and I have found  the general consensus is the taxpayers have lost their trust in the financial decision-making ability of the city and its council. If elected to council I will make this issue a top priority. I do, however, understand trust is earned, not given and this will take time and patience to repair.
2.  I’ve been involved with business in one form or another since the age of 19, with several very successful business mentors along the way.  
Also my time with the Lloydminster Fire Department has taught and trained me to make decisions under pressure. 
I believe business, and decision making experience is one of the biggest assets when it comes to being a effective councillor. 
3. The wastewater treatment plant has been a ongoing issue for some time, we need answers and options for this project as soon as possible. 
There has also been lots of talk some good, some not so good regarding the Community Hub Project and seems to be a sore subject with many residents, before we go and spend millions and millions of dollars on this project there needs to be more work done.
4. Being we are a Border city obviously brings it challenges when it comes to provincial money, we need to ensure we have the people in place that can see to it  Lloydminster gets its fair share of funding from all levels of government. The city need to be aggressive when it comes to the provinces to make sure we are not short changed.
5. My campaign has involved several different strategies from putting up election signs,  calling on businesses, door knocking, to Facebooking.  
Every eligible person in the city should vote , and as a candidate  its our responsibility to encourage people young, and old to exercise this right. I believe we will see a voter turnout well above the previous years percentage because of the younger candidates vying for a seat.
