What is your single biggest issue this election?

Need for more open and transparent local government decision-making, including much better communication and information-sharing by Oak Bay council with its residents.

How do you hope to solve it?

Advocating for improvements to use of electronic and print media for public information-sharing (streamline the website, quarterly municipal newsletter, full agenda packages, including staff reports) made available to the public through the municipal website prior to council meetings and in hard copy at council meetings and regular neighbourhood and town hall meetings scheduled throughout each calendar year.  Expand use of volunteer committees and develop a public consultation model.

What has council done well this term?

Preservation of parkland and the Green Map.

What would you do on council to improve it?

Diversify council appointments to CRD committees, ensure all internal council information-sharing is open and inclusive, work collaboratively with all staff to ensure staff development is focused on public service
