I’m Running for Re-Election as Mayor of Saskatoon
I’m passionate about Saskatoon.
I believe our history of innovation, problem-solving, and collaboration can position us as a leading city across Canada. My approach is centered on the belief that partnerships among groups with different perspectives can offer the best solutions to the challenges being faced by cities across the world. I’m committed to building a community where people see each other’s strengths instead of differences, where families can thrive, and children are able to see a future for themselves here.
I’m married to Sarah Buhler, a law professor at the University of Saskatchewan, and together we have three children: Simon, Ben, and Rachel. We also have a rambunctious dog, Cocoa.
Previous to serving as mayor, I was the Ward 6 City Councillor for ten years. Before elected life, I worked in the areas of mediation and community economic development. I have bachelor’s degrees in conflict resolution and education as well as a master’s degree in environmental studies.
