It is my honour to serve as City Manager. Regina has been my home for over 50 years – where I have raised my family and have had the privilege to serve residents throughout my more than 30-year municipal government career.
I am committed to leading us toward our vision of Regina as Canada’s most vibrant, inclusive, attractive and sustainable community where we live in harmony and thrive in opportunity. As an Administration, we are dedicated to building a strong community by providing reliable, sustainable services. It is important that we provide services and infrastructure at a level and of a quality that is sustainable today and tomorrow.
Our direction continues to be guided by our community priorities identified in the Official Community Plan (OCP). Building on those priorities, our Executive Leadership Team (ELT) and I are implementing the City’s 2018-2021 Strategic Plan, Making Choices Today to Secure Tomorrow: Advancing the Official Community Plan. We remain committed to finding approaches to delivering services that meet community expectations for affordability and accessibility, particularly when our city continues to grow and demands for local government services increase.
To achieve this, the City is working to build a collaborative One City – One Team approach, where all employees are empowered and have the skills and abilities necessary to do their jobs effectively and efficiently. My vision of One City – One Team includes all of us, City staff, City Council and the community working together to make Regina a great place to live, work and play.
The 2018-2021 Strategic Plan includes 12 objectives that build toward five targeted outcomes which were identified as being the most important for the City to achieve over the next four years.
- Residents trust us by being informed and engaged.
- We advance policy and service changes consistent with the Official Community Plan.
- We balance community need and affordability across all services.
- Residents value services and believe they receive value for what they pay.
- Employees are engaged and empowered.
