”My campaign will address the economic pocketbook issues that families stress about everyday. I will address the physical security concerns of many families that do not feel safe in their neighborhoods. I will offer the most progressive and responsible environmental policy ever to be put forward at City Hall. By championing these causes I will work for the residents of Abbotsford and make government work for them on an individual basis that will make their lives better.
This will make Abbotsford a better place for all families, including my own!

We also face facility and infrastructure challenges as we see demand for services and housing increase along with our population. In addition, we need to strengthen and diversify our community economic foundations to bring more jobs to Abbotsford.
