United By A Common Goal

John has a vested interest in our Community and City Council in Barrie . His five children and two grandchildren live in this Community as well. All live, work or go to school in our Community.

Prior to running for Ward 10 in Barrie , John spoke with neighbours and other constituents to see what they needed addressed in our Community.  Our common goals! 

Primarily, safety, affordable housing, better value for their tax dollar and a strong communicator at Council to get their needs addressed. Interestingly, they also want someone who can dedicate more time to the Ward as the number of people living in the Ward will double in only a matter of a few short years. 

John has a strong understanding of the needs of our Community and as a retired professional in Customer Communications, Customer Service and Marketing, John will make serving Ward 10 his full-time profession.
