There are many issues facing residents of St. John's.

From property assessments to water, residents need leadership that is proven.

As your representative on council for the past 12 years, I have witnessed many significant challenges; and I've been part of the solution time and again.

There are many issues facing residents of St. John's.

From property assessments to water, residents need leadership that is proven.

As your representative on council for the past 12 years, I have witnessed many significant challenges; and I've been part of the solution time and again.

Our latest challenge will come from issues created as a result of the growth and expansion of our city. This is sure to test our resolve and require the best fiscal planning and management available.

We must ensure citizens are protected, services are enhanced and that residents can afford to live here.

This election offers a true choice in two distinctly different mayoral candidates.

I believe I am a proven leader in many areas that will guide us fiscally, economically, environmentally and culturally.

This election is clearly about leadership that gets it.

I respectfully ask for your vote to keep working on your behalf.

This is an exciting time for St. John's.

Great economic success is within reach, but we must also be prepared to step up to the social and community challenges we face.

Let's replace the "business as usual" tone at City Hall with a more forward-looking approach that will help us attain the heights we're capable of reaching.

We need vision with a plan, a sense of our potential, combined with a realistic and planned approach to decision-making.

From potholes to environmental sustainability, from seniors' issues, to growth and development, my 17-point plan offers a practical and ethical roadmap for our future.

I want St. John's to be a city where my children, and yours, can thrive. I believe I've got the insight, determination and judgment necessary to be an effective leader.

I am ready to lead this great city and respectfully ask for your support in the upcoming election.

My vision creates caring neighbourhoods in our city. We will grow community gardens and share resources. Together, we are creating a place where people are truly inspired.

It's simple. Students and seniors deserve affordable and safe housing. We deserve safer sidewalks. We deserve healthy food and healthy lives.

If we take care of basic human needs, we are open to true joy.

Making street-side recycling and compost work for you will be easy for me. Being an organic farmer has enabled me to grow safe, healthy food throughout the city. I'll provide you with the tools to do the same.

My dream is that you feel the music and get your hands dirty.

We need a visionary approach. I want a healthy and happier city - How can we create that together?

I am proud St. John's is my home. A place that's not just livable - but alive!
