I believe that I was elected to be critical, honest, and fair. Community leaders are expected to bring the needs of the people to the decision process. They are not and should not be experts in a narrow field of view, rather, they ought to have real world experiences and a circle of influence that is affected by the decisions made.
I have lived in Whistler since 2002, with a brief time in Pemberton. My work experience includes 14 years at Whistler Blackcomb in Group Sales and operations. I have managed small retail stores, so I know how challenging it is to find, retain and reward front line staff. However, taking care of our front line is the most important task of our Tourism economy. They are the first encounter our guests have, and will help those guests decide to return and recommend Whistler to the world!
