Offering Vision, Leadership and Integrity
Over the years, I have owned and/or operated businesses in Wasaga Beach, Collingwood, Ottawa, Port Carling, Alliston and now in Midland, Penetanguishene, Port Severn and Waubaushene.
I have been self-employed for 38 plus years. I have won awards in this capacity for sales, operational excellence and customer service. I pride myself on my management abilities and especially in financial matters, including budget projection. I have demonstrated time and again my ability to stay on budget and on time with many different projects. I am knowledgeable and have experience in the construction of both residential and commercial development. As a businessman, I have a great wealth of experience with Finance, Human Resources, Payroll, Customer Service, and Conflict Resolution.
I believe in our community. I am a long-term Ambassador of the Tim Horton’s Children’s Foundation, a great organization that sends almost 20,000 deserving kids to camp every year. Six children each year are from Wasaga Beach. I have sat on the Wasaga Community Theater Board of Directors and, in past years, my wife and I enjoyed chaperoning Youth Dances regularly at the RecPlex. I am also proud to be an Honorary Member of the Wasaga Beach Lions Club. In my last term of Council, I donated 100% of my after-tax dollars earned from being Mayor back into our community and my family hosted the Mayors Christmas Dinner for people in our community who were in need or would be alone on Christmas.

Others dream things that never were and ask why not."
