Additionally, I have attended and sat on numerous community committees including the Terwillegar Riverbend Advisory Council, SWEC-Newcomers, Brander Garden Rocks. I will continue to attend the many community groups that serve community and support families.  It is through this participation at the community level that I am kept on top of the issues and connected to community, enhancing ability to effectively serve Ward 76 as your Trustee.
