I was born and raised on the Nashwaak River.
I worked, played and raised my family in this community.
I love the place I call home; it’s why I have worked for so long to bring us all together to form what is now called the Nashwaak Rural Community.
I’ve worked for the past 45 years for my father at our family business, now owning this business. I love serving my community in this capacity. Now with my family grown and moved on to live their lives I have devoted my time volunteering. I am the current president of Nashwaak valley rec center, a former member of the LSD advisory board, and the Nashwaak rural community advisory board.
It is a great honor to have been elected to serve as the first mayor of this community and I will work for you as hard as I have for more family to make this an even better place to live.

I have lived in this community since 1974 where I attended and graduated from Stanley High School and earned an Animal Science Degree from Dalhousie's NSAC. I met my wife Shirley just after she graduated from UNB Nursing and together, we moved to Greenville, NC. In 2002 our twin boys were born and the desire to move back home began to grow. In 2003 we moved to London, Ontario. Though happy in Ontario, every trip home became harder and harder for us to leave. Once our daughter was born in 2007, we decided that the time had come to find a way to move back home. Our chance came in 2009 when Shirley was hired to work at the NB Dept of Health for their Cancer Network. We purchased the family farm in Maple Grove and built a new home for my parents on the property and together, we have continued to make it our home. Currently, I am the manager of the Upper Nashwaak Agrena in the winter months and keep busy around the farm during the summer months.
The Nashwaak is truly our home and I am excited to offer my service to the community here as the Ward 3 Councillor. We live in an amazing area with lots of community pride. I pledge to support our rural life, our ward and our community as a whole. We have a fantastic collection of recreation and sporting facilities across the community. The Nashwaak River and the surrounding watershed, woodland and farming areas are vital to our identity and I pledge to protect these resources while helping direct our community to become all it can be.
Amy has fifteen years of work in the human services and community development sector. Most recently she has worked on a rural food security research project in the Nashwaak Valley and with environmental non-profits. Originally from Cassidy Lake, New Brunswick, Amy has a love for rural communities and the cooperative way of life that they offer. Amy moved to Taymouth in 2015 and is happy to have found a permanent home in the Nashwaak Valley. As a volunteer for the Taymouth Community Association and Nashwaak Watershed Association, she looks forward to this new opportunity to represent the Ward 4 community.
My current professional life is focused on organizational and facilities management. In developing these skills, I was also provided with the opportunities and challenges of progressive responsibility. I’m eager to use my business and cultural knowledge from project management, logistics, food systems, budgeting, and diversity and apply them to new challenges in the region in which I live. I’m an energetic and focused individual and this has allowed me to work well when collaborating with others. I am excited to be councillor for Ward 5 and part of a team of dynamic people working together to maintain and grow a healthy and welcoming place for the residents of Nashwaak.
