Philosophy and Opportunity:
I believe in the principles and initiatives of the Green Party, and feel
is right in our country and our province for great strides to be taken, and
public support to be gained. We do, however, have work to do! Much of this
work in organizational.
- We need to co-ordinate our efforts and our resources.
- We need to work in a collaborative and collective way.
- We need to expand our membership.
- We need to greatly increase our communications, both internally and
I believe that my training and experience, my enthusiasm and available time
brings me to the right place at the right time. With your support, I will work
collaboratively with our executive team and that of the provincial division
the Green Party of Canada to help facilitate the next mile of our journey!
