I have lived and worked in Southeast MB for the past 34 years and enjoy being an active part of this positive, progressive, and hardworking community. My wife Carolyn and I, along with our family, have always been strong advocates for the communities we live in and I believe it is important to be a positive contributor to the community. I am currently the Vice President of Logistics and Industry Relations at Steve’s Livestock Transport, where I have been employed for the past 24 years.

My role as a trustee is one of accountability to the public and I have a responsibility to bring forward the voice and views of the people within the communities of the Hanover School Division. Fiscal responsibility remains a priority, with HSD as one of the most efficient in the province. Balancing the cost of quality education, and an obligation to the use of taxpayer dollars is an integral part of my role. As a trustee and a parent, I believe that the Hanover School Division is one of the best in the province and with strong leadership, it can continue as such.

A solid foundation for our students is built through strong connections between the people of the community in which we live and the schools within it. I believe in the voice of the parents, and work hard to ensure there is positive communication between students, parents and educators. I look forward to continuing to serve the community of Steinbach.
