I am proud and honoured to continue serving as Mayor for the Town of Creston. As I reflect on the last nine years in this role, I can’t help but recognize that there have been a lot of wins achieved for this community. However, it was recently brought to my attention that sometimes these wins aren’t always communicated to our citizenry. It is easy to get so busy “doing” that you sometimes forget to publicly acknowledge the successes that are achieved along the way. Many of these successes have been for our larger Valley, not just for the municipality. Working together with each other, and with the Town of Creston Council, Regional District Electoral Area Directors Jackman, Wall and Binks, we continue to strive to advance our Valley as a whole.
