About the Mayor

Thank-you to the residents of St. Johns who have given us the privilege to serve as your City Council for the next four years. I am honoured and humbled to be returned for my fourth term on City Council and second term as mayor. I am excited to lead such a talented City Council with diverse backgrounds – one that reflects the demographics of our City. As I said to the new Council on October 12, 2021 at the Swearing-in Ceremony, key to our success will be engaging proactively with the public on the important issues we face, considering all the information (including everyone’s thoughts and opinions), making the best decisions possible and communicating our decisions effectively.

I firmly believe that we cannot operate in isolation and must continue to develop and enhance fair and mutually beneficial relationships with other municipalities, business and community partners, and the provincial and federal governments. The more effectively we work together, the better for everyone in St. John’s and our neighbouring municipalities.

We have a firm strategic plan in place and strong goals to work towards. 

  • Our goal is to use your tax dollars wisely, ensuring that our organization is effectively and efficiently run,
  • Being a sustainable city - economically, environmentally and financially – calls on us as a Council to create the conditions that drive the economy; protect, preserve and enhance the natural environment.
  • We must consider how people move around our city, and the regional transportation connections and infrastructure for which we have responsibility.
  • Our city is changing and diversifying, and expectations around inclusion and accessibility will be top of mind for Council.

Ultimately, we have an important role to place in creating a city where people feel connected, have a sense of belonging and are actively engaged in community life.
