2022 Windsor Election Rose City Politics Candidate Questionnaire answers:

1. What is your prior political experience?

I ran for municipal office in 2018, provincial office in 2022. I’m familiar with both local and provincial issues, but have not held a public office position.

2. Why are you running?

I realized that the issues facing me and my family were also felt by the wider community; transit, bike lanes, affordable housing, good jobs. I believe “campaigning” is the most effective way to engage and educate the wider public about local and provincial issues.

3. What do you do currently for a living?

Major Gift Officer, Faculty of Science at the University of Windsor

4. What is the biggest issue affecting the ward you are running for?

Holding property taxes at the 2022 levels

Holding property taxes at the 2022 levels

6. Are you seeking any endorsements?


7. Have you received any endorsements?

Yes, Windsor District Labour Council

8. Will you continue the “hold the line on taxes” policy?

Yes, I do support holding the line on our taxes, but not by outsourcing unionized work.

9. Do you support the mega-hospital location?


10. Do you support strong mayor legislation?

Yes, Invest Windsor Essex plays an important role in the continued development of the region.

12. If you are running in a ward with an incumbent who is also running, why is change necessary, and why are you the person to deliver it?

Change is necessary because the current incumbent has shown he is not committed to ward eight. He seized the first opportunity to seek another political office and illustrated that he was ready to abandon his earlier commitment to the neighborhood.

Twenty to twenty-five hours per week.

14. Do you live in the ward you are running for?
