Sam is a small business owner who has been at the forefront of advocating for issues affecting the community, transportation industry, and sound sustainable development, both municipally and provincially.

His parents taught Sam the value of hard work and a strong work ethic from a young age. As a small business owner now himself, Sam can attest first-hand to the hardships brought on by COVID-19 and is determined to meet the challenges facing this community and the Province head on.
