Editor:

First of all, I would like to congratulate the new mayor and council!  I believe we can stand together as members of our city knowing Williams Lake is an amazing community.

It has been an honour to serve as mayor over the last six years.  I have many awesome  memories and have met many people who have made a difference in my life.

I would like to thank our city staff and management team at city hall. I have appreciated your help and want to recognize your service to the city.

To my city council colleagues. I have appreciated each and every member that I have had the opportunity to serve with over my three terms on council.  Thank you for making a difference in our community. I would like to thank Thompson Rivers University, my employer for the last 30 years. Thank you for approving my reduced workload which has allowed me to be both mayor and faculty member. I look forward to returning to my full time position in the new year.

The election results will not change my commitment or passion for our great city. I will always love Williams Lake. Especially the people. I have appreciated everyone who has encouraged and inspired me throughout the years.  To all of the community partners and volunteers who continually  dedicate themselves to making Williams Lake an even better place to live. Thank you!

I don’t know exactly what the future holds for me but in the short term I am looking forward to Christmas and spending more time with family and friends. I am truly blessed as I receive this gift of rest.

The last six years has been a journey I will never forget. Thank you Williams Lake!
