Why I'm Running

I have watched in complete disbelief as the news has unfolded over Jody Wilson-Raybould's allegations that the Prime Minister and his office have attempted to interfere in criminal prosecutions.

Politics shouldn't interfere with the administration of justice. That's a core principle of our system. Canada is better than that.

Never before has it been more obvious that we need people of integrity to stand up for what's right.

I’ve lived in Durham Region my entire life and raised my family here. In my 27 years with the Durham Regional Police Service, I’ve seen first hand how waste and mismanagement are hurting the frontline services that our community relies upon. I want to take the lessons I've learned at a local level and bring them to Ottawa.

I have dedicated my life to ensuring the safety of the residents of our community. I believe more than ever that real change is required to guarantee that Ajax remains a safe place to live, work and raise a family.

We need a fresh approach to leadership with the courage to challenge the status quo. Transparency and accountability shouldn’t just be catch phrases for career politicians. It’s time to bring these principles – which I’ve worked for throughout my career – back to public office.
