Some of you may think this picture is a little odd for an election post. Let me begin by saying that I am so honoured to have the right to put my name forward to serve my community…the picture represents the men and women who have fought for yours and my rights to run for an elected leadership position and our right and privilege to vote. But this picture represents so much more   than that, this picture shows how I believe government should be done.

If you look at local government as community leaders, then there should be some expectations that go along with that.

As John Quincy Adams said ““If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” True leaders give people what they need to be successful.

Below is a short list of things I believe are important qualities to look for in the people who represent you.

-Someone who can explain why they are running for a position.

-Someone who focuses on people not position. A person who builds relationships because it will be through relationships that things move forward.

-Someone who motivates and inspires and brings people and organizations together.

-Someone who freely gives of themselves without any thought of personal gain. Choose a leader who has been involved in the community, who has proven what the community means to them by their involvement.

-Someone who encourages and listens to others. Someone who takes the time to get involved.

-Someone who you can respect….a position in local government gives a person some authority, but a person’s actions, character and values are what earn them respect.”

My profile picture is a picture of what I believe government should look like…people helping people because we are Stronger Together.
