I have been a long-time resident of Jackson’s Point pre 2011 as seasonal resident. In 2011 my wife Cathy and I moved into the lakefront property that my grandfather bought in 1949, coincidentally the year I was born. I graduated from York University Glendon Campus in 1973 and began my career with Oshawa Foods/Sobeys immediately after until I retired in 2006. I started my volunteer work as a Beaver, Cub, and Scout Leader. Went on to be a fundraiser and support for Yonge Street Mission and Evergreen Youth Drop in Centre. Since moving up I have been involved on several committees: Jackson’s point BIA (Chair) 9 years, Link Steering Committee 3 years, Vice-chair of Jericho Youth Services 2 years, and Mayors Motorcycle Committee 4 years. I look forward to working with our Georgina community to support existing medical needs and more importantly working to meet our future medical needs.
