Mayor’s primary responsibility is to support the Council decision-making process and represent the City.

Ken is a 40 year resident of North Vancouver. He has a diverse background in business that has ranged from digital advertising to the automotive industry. This is his first time running for City Council. It follows over ten years as a volunteer with two important City-related committees: the Social Planning Advisory Committee (SPAC) and more recently the Friends of the North Vancouver Museum and Archives. I believe he would be an excellent representative of the community at Council.
