Remember TimTV?

Much has changed in our district since I was first elected in 2008. It’s a larger district with new boundaries that encompass Larry Uteck, Starboard Drive, Royal Hemlocks, West Bedford and more. While the number of families I represent has changed over the past 12 years (and my hair has gone a little “fairer”), my commitment to the priorities we all share remains the same. Take a trip down memory lane and watch a collection of my TimTV episodes, a series created during the past municipal elections to help residents get to know me, my family, my supporters and the community I call home. 

Pay no mind, of course, to the dates at the end of the videos (they’re from elections past).
