In this period of uncertainty, it is crucial to have a passionate leader who is informed, connected, and experienced to represent you. During my tenure as president of your union, I have developed relationships at various levels that are essential to the membership during these difficult and precarious times. As always, I am committed to defend your rights and promote your interests.
I was born and raised on a farm in North Central Saskatchewan. Shortly after high school graduation, I relocated to Edmonton where I enrolled in programs at NAIT and the University of Alberta.
Following employment at McGregor Power and Telephones as well as the Alberta Liquor Control Board, I accepted a position with the City of Edmonton's Waste and Sanitation Department at the Gold Bar Wastewater Treatment Plant and immediately became involved in the affairs of CSU 52. I served as a shop steward and as a member on various committees for many years. Prior to becoming President of your union eight years ago, I represented you as a Vice President on two occasions.
I have one son, two daughters, five wonderful grandchildren and a beautiful, supportive wife. The highlight of the summer is taking a road trip with the grandchildren. It is hectic, but always memory making.
