Innovative City

Belleville needs a strategy that embraces and grows innovation - bringing new jobs to the city and accelerating rural innovation.

Regional Leadership

Belleville needs to be a leader in shaping our region. We have incredible neighbours, each with their own strengths. With more collaboration, we can grow, together.

Abundance of Opportunity For All

We continue to see high poverty rates in the region. We need to spend equal time on housing, transit, and food insecurity to improve the quality of life for all.


I am looking forward to working with the new council on an innovative platform that prioritizes the creation of a 12 year strategy for our city.
