Whether you have been a part of this municipality for generations or are a new
resident, you know that Trent Lakes is a special place. Helping to make Trent Lakes
the best it can be for families and ratepayers of the community is a role that I look
forward to. Living and working here has provided my family the wonderful

opportunity to enjoy what Trent Lakes has to offer such as sports, music and art.

Trent Lakes is fortunate to have a diverse range of small businesses within the municipality. Supporting our local entrepreneurs and encouraging new business will promote a thriving local economy. Effective growth requires invested leadership, teamwork, and collaboration. I am committed to giving the ratepayers and business owners a voice.
Through teamwork at council, we will support Trent Lakes staff and continue to build our township responsibly working with: Peterborough & Kawartha Economic Development, Economic Development Advisory Committee, Community Futures Peterborough, Parks Recreation and Cultural Advisory Committee, Sir Sanford Fleming College & Trent University to provide young residents with education and opportunity.
Our lakes, rivers and streams are a big part of what draws people to Trent Lakes throughout every season.
As the population in our municipality continues to see growth, the water needs to be protected to ensure quality is maintained. It is essential that council works with the ratepayers and encourages them to bring forward their thoughts and ideas to better understand the concerns surrounding water quality in the municipality.
