About Jim


As a life-long Barrie resident, and someone who is asking to be your elected representative I feel it is important to provide you with some information about who I am and how I will approach the role of Councillor.   Barrie is more than where I live, it is a part of who I am.



My professional experience includes both participating and leading planning and community development efforts at a National, Provincial, Regional and Local Level.   Most recently I was honoured to receive the Chief of Police Award at the 2018 Barrie Police Services.  I look forward to building on my efforts to increase the safety of our community. 


Key Issues

 Ward 8 has issues that are unique and important to our residents.   Recent issues include the proposed  transit hub and waterfront stadium.    Other key issues include: Traffic Management, City Facilities and Services, Fair Taxation, Preserving our History, the Local Economy, Affordable Housing, and Increasing Access to Post Secondary Education.  As your voice on Council I would like to hear what your key issues are.
