Editor, The Times:

Staying true to core beliefs of family, friends, community, and our freedoms

Editor, The Times:

I have lived in Clearwater for 39 years and I was a first aid attendant for many years as well. I have worked in the wood industry here, from planting it to nailing it, and have also done so many other odd jobs to make ends meet.

I started to work in the oil and gas sector in 2002 as a medic, then a roughneck, then as a safety/air hand.

I was also on many safety boards and often was made lead-hand on projects; I believe I have the tools and the training to take on the task as a council member.

The main reasons why I am running for council, first off, is my family, but mostly because my son asked me to, and also because my friends are always telling me I should run for council.

All of us have ideas to help this community and I want to stay true to my core beliefs of family, friends, community, and our freedoms.

I was in an almost fatal motor vehicle accident some years ago and it changed the way I look at things.

To be honest, it changed a lot of things for me and my family, as I now tend to research things and discuss them with family and friends before making a decision.

On Oct. 20 I hope to get your vote.
