Late last month, I was given the honour of being named New Westminster’s 2017 Citizen of the Year.
I am immensely grateful to be recognized and to follow in a long line of incredible people who have carried this title before me. I am also grateful for this community – for the people, organizations and businesses that make New Westminster so vibrant and caring. I’ve been fortunate to work on projects, serve on committees, and volunteer my time with hundreds of people who are dedicated and who care.
New Westminster is an urban city with a small town vibe and an enormous heart. My gratitude goes out to everyone who makes New Westminster the wonderful community that I love.
