As Mayor of Balgonie, Frank is automatically on all Council Committees and will also be representing Balgonie in the White Butte Regional Planning Committee.
Having strong ties to this community, I believe that by serving on Town Council, it provides me with a great opportunity to put back into a community that I have had the fortune to enjoy for so long. I graduated from Greenall in 1983 and have been a resident of Balgonie since 1988.

Credibility and integrity have always been very important to me. As part of the team my responsibilities includes; Deputy Mayor, Finance Committee, White Butte Regional Committee, Health and Cemetery Committee and the Protective Services Committee.
