Christina Lake Elected Official

It is my great pleasure to be your RDKB Area C Director and represent the community of Christina Lake.
I always look forward to delivering to you the very best interests of our community.
My job as your Area C Director includes attending Regional District Board and Committee meetings. It is my responsibility to be our voice to Provincial and Federal governments to get to know who to contact and liaise with and to be a strong voice to send the message about the needs of our community to those people. It is also advantageous they get to know me as that strong advocate for our community.
We can all agree Christina Lake is a thriving, inclusive community full of opportunities to get involved and stay active at all stages of life. I marvel at, and I am proud of all that Christina Lake has to offer – the magnificent water and sandy beaches, our renowned trail system that is second to none, a game of pickleball on the courts of the Pickleball Capital of Canada, a Trademark we own, our Welcome Centre and artisans, special events celebrating our rural heritage, and so much more that reflects our charming way of life that adds to the very best of rural living. It takes a lot of hard work for the whole community to retain this way of life and I am proud as your elected official and that you have entrusted me with making regional decisions that directly affect our daily lives. I want to say thank you for working with me to address community and broader-based issues proactively to find collective solutions so that we can continue to enjoy our way of life, because this IS the life, come home to the lake!
