Dear Riverdale South Constituents:
Representing Riverdale South in the Yukon Legislative Assembly is truly an honour and I am very thankful for the opportunity. I want to acknowledge the hard work of Jan Stick and Danny Macdonald during the election campaign. Also, thank you to Jan for her five years of dedication and representation of our riding.
As the cabinet was formed, I was appointed Minister of Education and Minister of Justice – two areas in which I have experience and great passion. The first few months have been spent meeting people and learning the work of both departments, studying budgets, and working on the priorities set by Yukon voters.
As spring starts to melt the Yukon and our Riverdale trails and parks open up, I look forward to seeing you in the neighbourhood. If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out. Staying connected to Riverdale constituents and issues is crucial and I am always just a call or email away.
