I grew up in Kilbride. I’m married with four children to my wonderful wife Laura. I graduated from Bishop’s College in 1969. I moved to the Goulds 35 years ago and operated a landscaping business for nearly forty years. I was elected in 2005 and has represented the ward over the past three elections. I am hoping to continue serving the ward after this election.
