A resident of Foster for 17 years, I have previously been Director of Parks and Recreation and I have almost 40 years of experience in operations and municipal governments. I have also sat on various committees as a volunteer, including the Board of Directors of Brome Lake Recreation and Community Services and many Quebec and Canadian organizations. I was a hockey official for 30 years, a Canadian record in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League where I am still supervising officials. Outdoor and sport enthusiast, you are more likely to find me kayaking on the lake, skating on an ice rink, walking on the path than sitting in front of the TV, except perhaps during some professional hockey games where I work for the NHL at the Bell Center to judge the video playbacks, as this sport is one of my greatest passions.
At age 62, I am far from contemplating retirement since, on the contrary, I feel more than ever the desire to help improve the well-being of my fellow citizens of TBL, including those of my district of Foster. This first mandate as town councillor will allow me to use all my professional experience in the files entrusted to me, including the Planning Advisory Committee (CCU) and the Human Resources Committee. I also want to keep residents up to date on municipal issues and see how to enhance Foster’s recreational group.
A friend and a committed neighbour, I am also a good communicator. You can count on me to be really active on all the issues that are important to the residents. With that in mind, I am aware that my district represents two distinct realities, those who live on the lake and those who live in the village of Foster. It is therefore very important for me to share and fairly represent each other’s concerns to the Council. I am here for you, so do not hesitate to contact me, if you have any questions or issues that are important to you and for which I can help you.
