On November 15, 2014, I was deeply honoured to be elected by the citizens of Vancouver to serve on their Board of Parks and Recreation.

For the next four years, I look forward to working with my Park Board colleagues and our partner groups on the job of strengthening and improving our green spaces and public facilities.  I also look forward to engaging a wide assortment of Vancouver residents in bringing their ideas and energy to this work.

I believe strongly that our parks, seniors centres, open spaces, community centres, public art installations, plazas, cultural events and festivals, are a form of public trust.  Over the next four years I will focus on those things that benefit our collective well-being and help keep our city among the best places in the world to live.
