Ward 2 update - March 2018

Happy first week of Spring! It sounds like the weather won't be cooperating to match the official change in season, but it sure has been nice to enjoy a bit of extra sunshine as we brace for the next forecasted snowfall. Of course, changing seasons comes with roadway challenges - you can find more about that below.  Continue reading

Ward 2 update - September 2017

I had the privilege of participating in Federation of Canadian Municipality (FCM) meetings in Ft. McMurray this month. I enjoyed learning from other municipalities about their efforts in affordable housing, community safety, and more. Through my and my colleagues' work on these committees, Saskatoon is adding it's voice to the work of FCM advocating on behalf of Cities across Canada to the Federal Government. You can find my specific FCM committee appointments at the bottom of this email.  Continue reading

Ward 2 update - July 2017

July has been a bit of a slower month. Standing policy committees don't meet in July, nor do most community associations or advisory committees. This has meant a bit of time to enjoy the sun, and also to catch up on files that require a bit of dedicated attention. Meetings resume tomorrow (out of schedule). See below for an agenda-in-brief and the schedule for tomorrow's Council meetings.I hope you've also had a chance to switch gears and enjoy some of what our fine city has to offer in the summer! Some highlights for me lately were the FIBA 3X3 basketball tournament downtown, and a Theatre in the Park performance I was able to attend in Pleasant Hill Park!  Continue reading
