I’d like to thank my family who have been incredibly supportive for the duration of this often exhausting campaign and I’d like to thank my many generous volunteers, donors, and all those who cast their ballot for me.
It was an honour to serve the residents of Fort Saskatchewan over the past four years as their city councillor."
