As a resident, a business owner, a father of two young children and a grandfather, I am extremely motivated to lead our community as Mayor of Wasaga Beach. A community that makes the lives of all of our residents better. And the way to do that, is to put our residents FIRST.

My Story


Rising inflation. Affordability crisis. Unreliable roads. No sidewalks. Flooding. Crime. Limited access to our beach and trails. Unemployment. Lack of a Highschool and Elementary schools. Limited activities for all ages. And More.

I have heard from residents across Wasaga Beach. I have gathered all of their input. And this input has been the foundation for my priorities and all of the items I plan to do to achieve my priorities.

My Experience

I listen to public concerns: Leslie engages and listens to residents’ concerns so that he can create and execute a plan for Wasaga Beach that PUTS RESIDENTS FIRST. 

I have reviewed, analyzed and made decisions on proposals from outside sources: As a local business owner, I have reviewed, accepted and denied many proposals to move my business forward.

I have created, put in place and executed new rules and regulations: As the owner of a federally regulated Commercial Aviation Operation; including charter, sightseeing, skydiving and a flight school, rules and regulations are integral. Every decision I make has a significant impact on my customers.

I stay current on all job-related materials: In my industry, this is a priority so that I ensure the safety and security of all of my customers and team. 

I have successfully led and managed a team: I have retained my team for 8-years. This has been done by hiring the right people for the position, ensuring individual and team morale, fostering individual and team growth and motivating superior performance.   

I have served on a number of committees: I was the Gift of Hair Because We Care-Founder and committee member, member of Town of Wasaga Beach Branding Strategy workgroup, the CSPA National Parachuting Championship Committee as well as the Cookstown Aerodrome management Committee.

I have managed a profitable business and its budget: My business was founded in 2014 and is still growing strong.

I have experience working with different levels of Government: In my industry, it is imperative to effectively and successfully work with all three levels of government, their process and regulations – most importantly, I know how to get things done within the system.
