Get to know me
My wife Stephanie and I were born and raised in Newmarket. Growing up here we have witnessed the ongoing growth of Newmarket from a small town. We embrace the exciting future of Newmarket while valuing the small town feel we grew up with. I believe that continuing to incorporate vibrant people-gathering spaces, green spaces and community building events into the future growth of Newmarket are essential to maintaining our small town soul. I look forward to working with the residents of ward 4, community leaders and organizations to realize that vision.
As your councillor I will strive to ensure that any concerns from the residents of Ward 4 will be addressed in a timely manner and I will respond within 24 hours of contacting me. In my role as a Chiropractor I am aware of the importance of active listening and the need for a rapid response to clients concerns and needs. I know that having a prompt reply to a question or concern allows for quick resolution so we can continue to enjoy our day to day lives.
Please feel free to communicate with me in any way you feel comfortable. In addition to email and telephone I will be available on social media platforms for contact as well as holding semi-annual meetings and an annual neighbourhood event. Of course, you can talk with me in person at any of our town’s amazing events. Every question, concern or comment you have is important to me.
As a parent and resident of a rapidly growing community I recognize the need for safety. I believe it is the right of all residents to feel safe in their community. Two areas I will be perusing with the town council are:
1. Enhanced lighting of gathering spaces, trails, paths and parks
2. The implementation of a consolidated strategy to respond to concerns related to increased traffic and speeding in our neighbourhood.
- Investigate options to improve and increase parking
- Ensure future development of Old Clock Tower integrates heritage and functionality
- Determine the best use of space for the Newmarket Public Library with respect to new development, repurposed spaces and satellite buildings
People centred spaces
Green spaces and sporting venues bring communities and people together. Many communities today recognize the importance of creating a more livable community by enhancing local recreation opportunities. As your councillior, I will strive to bring recreational opportunities closer to home by providing an outdoor skating rink and tennis court within ward 4, which allows us to walk or ride to.
- Increase requirements on affordable housing for new developments
- Develop and expand by-laws regarding in-fill development with existing communities in order to ensure cohesive planning
- Ensure that repercussions such as fines for the town's maintenance of properties that fall below by-law standards be enforced to ensure that our communities are a place where pride of ownership is displayed
