Dan resides in Groundbirch with his wife Wendy, where they operate a successful cattle ranch and a small oilfield business. They have a daughter and two sons who all live in the Dawson Creek area.
Dan is a strong advocator for the rural community and understands the challenges rural communities face. As Director, Dan believes that governments are accountable to the people that elect them, and as such, it is crucial for residents to be brought into the planning process early so their voices can be heard, and further, that all levels of government must communicate and engage with residents prior to implementing new policy or legislation.
Dan’s political interests include solid waste and recycling, drinking water access, agriculture, taxation, planning, rural connectivity, health care, seniors housing, and open and transparent communication.
Dan chairs the Solid Waste Committee, the Regional Parks Committee, the Chetwynd Civic Properties Commission, the Health care Scholarship Committee, and sits on various other committees and working groups. Dan is also the lead on caribou for the Peace River Regional District.
