My Vision for Barrhaven West

Fiscal responsibility

The cost of living is skyrocketing. It’s becoming harder to stretch your funds. We need to keep property taxes low and ensure we aren’t spending recklessly. The city of Ottawa is already in too much debt with no clear answers on how to pay for all of it.

Reliable Transit

The patterns of transit riders are changing. Park and rides sit empty with travel to the downtown core limited following the pandemic. We need to reimagine bus routes to get you where you need to go in a quick, reliable, and affordable fashion.

Community safety

Barrhaven West reported a 20.7 per cent increase in 2021. Almost every day we are hearing of carjackings, break ins, and swarmings happening in the community. We need to keep our neighbourhoods safe for our children and young families. I aim to work with Ottawa Police to ensure Barrhaven West is adequately served by on the ground response, and will fight for a return of community policing in Barrhaven. 

Youth engagement

With so many teenagers and young adults calling Barrhaven West home, we need to ensure the ward is full of activities for them to take part in. Barrhaven is no longer a sleepy suburb; it’s a city within a city. I will fight for more youth programming along with community space for basketball, soccer, skateboarding and other recreational activities. 

My Vision & Mission

What I Believe

Barrhaven West is a rapidly growing community. With people of all ages calling this great neighbourhood home, I strive to ensure your voice is heard around the council table. Your issues are what matters to me.

Transparency

The last four years have been full of division, name calling, and projects being rushed through without proper debate or consultation. It’s community members who vote elected officials into office, and it’s their voices who need to be heard at city hall. City councillors work for the people they serve. If elected I will ensure existing and future projects are revisited with proper public consultation and engagement.

Quick communication

When Barrhaven West constituents contact their local councillor, they expect a timely response to their inquiries. If I’m elected to be your representative, I strive to ensure your matters are dealt with appropriately. I’d also look for new ways to ensure my office was easily accessible for all your needs.

Greenbank road realignment

The community of Half Moon Bay continues to see rapid development, with no easy access point in and out of the neighbourhood. We cannot wait another 10+ years to hopefully see the Greenbank road realignment come into fruition; we need it now. I’d work with all levels of government to find the funding needed to finally lift this project off the ground. 

Community safety

I aim to work with Ottawa Police to ensure Barrhaven West is adequately served by on the ground response, and will fight for a return of community policing in Barrhaven. 

Improving Infrastructure

While our community continues to grow, infrastructure has not kept up with the pace. Roads need to be widened or repaved, more sidewalks are needed, traffic calming measures need to be enhanced, and other aging infrastructure needs to be replaced. Barrhaven West needs a strong representative at the council table who will fight for funding to get these projects done.

Barrhaven continues to expand and will continue to see growth and development. But we must ensure we are doing it right. We cannot continue to build without ensuring our infrastructure is upgraded to meet the needs. We must also ensure any development we approve doesn’t have any possible downsides for other residents.

Traffic & Speeding

Traffic in Barrhaven is increasing. That is not to be unexpected. We are a growing suburban community which relies heavily on cars. We also don’t currently have a good localized transit system which could offer an alternative form of transportation.
