My Priorities

Fighting for Affordable Living

Property Taxes must remain low and predictable for residents.

City Services That Work for YOU

Prioritizing City Services and Community Infrastructure that meets our needs.

Protecting Our Greenspaces

Green neighbourhoods make healthy communities!

Safer Roads and Neighbourhoods

Whether speeding on streets, thefts, or safe school crossings, community safety impacts us all.

My Platform

Affordable Living

The cost of living is consistently ranked as one of the most pressing issues for Ottawa residents. For the past decade, the priority from City Hall has been to keep property taxes as affordable and predictable for residents as possible. Come October, Ottawa will have a new mayor, a new council, and possibly with new and different priorities.

I am committed to continuing the fight for you, for affordable property taxes, and fiscal responsibility at City Hall. 

City Services that work for YOU

I will work to ensure that improving City Services, particularly in the east end, remains a priority.

  • Improved winter maintenance on our roads, sidewalks, and pathways;
  • Better-quality transit service;
  • Long-term planning for our waste and recycling;
  • Resurfacing of our aging roadways; and
  • Upgrading and replacing our park infrastructure.

Protecting our Greenspaces

Orléans is so fortunate to have dozens of trails, naturalized greenspaces, ice rinks, forests, parks, ravines, pathways, the list is extensive. Many of our streets and neighbourhoods are also bordered with a decades-old tree canopy, one that is growing every year. As someone who spends as much time outside and active as possible, I have always been a fierce defender for all our greenspaces.

  • Upgrading local parks and playground equipment.
  • Installing benches and improved pathways – building walkable and accessible neighbourhoods.
  • Greatly expanding the winter maintenance of our multi-use pathway network.
  • Coordinating tree plantings and tree giveaways.

Safer Neighbourhoods

Whether it be speeding on our streets, our child’s walk to school, or concerns about thefts in the area, community safety is hand’s down the number one concern I hear from residents. It is imperative that we all feel safe in our homes, and when we step out the door. A safer community is our collective shared goal.

I have worked to support new and enhanced traffic calming measures on Ottawa streets; the return of local, community-based, police officers and resource teams; and personally introduced the motions to expand the school crossing guard program – ensuring all warranted locations in the city received a guard.

Neighbourhood safety is never “done”; it must always be a work in progress. As your Councillor, I will continue to fight to ensure our community and streets are safe.
