Why I’m Running

We all know many politicians are famous for finding reasons to say no.  

That’s never been me. That’s not the Ontario PC Party.

I’m a listener, a solution finder, and a candidate for a party that says YES.

Yes to an Ontario economy that will emerge from the pandemic stronger and better than before.

Yes to more opportunity, bringing more workers into the skilled trades.

Yes to building homes that families in Parry Sound-Muskoka can afford.

Yes to new hospitals in Huntsville and Bracebridge.

Yes to respecting and preserving our natural environment.

We’re the only party ready to build.

Join me to build Ontario’s future.

I’ve lived in the Parry Sound – Muskoka area my whole life and have worked hard as a community builder, business owner and leader that builds for the future.

Mayor of Bracebridge since 2010, I also currently serve as the Deputy Chair of the District of Muskoka. As President of the Association of Municipalities of Ontario, I worked with municipalities in our riding of Parry Sound – Muskoka and throughout the province to make sure we were represented by a strong voice at Queen’s Park.

As Mayor and District Councillor, I fought for and led the conversation for a two-hospital plan for Huntsville and South Muskoka; secured funding for much needed community projects; and lead Bracebridge through two major flood events in 2013 and 2019, for which I was recognized as Bracebridge as Citizen of the Year.

I grew up in Port Sydney, went to high school in Huntsville, and live with my wife and two kids in Bracebridge.

I learned a lot as a child watching and helping my parents operate our family gas station and restaurant and appreciate how hard people work, how to be community-minded, and to always give back. These values are the foundation of my career and are the principal reason why I want to continue this work on behalf of the people of Parry Sound – Muskoka as part of Doug Ford’s team at Queen’s Park.

Join me in making Parry Sound – Muskoka even stronger for the future.
