Leading Tofino towards a better tomorrow


"An experienced, dedicated community leader and advocate."

Tofino Is Our Home...

My partner Mollie and I have been raising our 5 kids here since arriving in a minivan in 2001. I found work as a Registered Nurse at the Tofino General Hospital, and we were fortunate early on to be able to rent, then purchase a small home that we still live in. My work in Tofino eventually led into a Nuuchahnulth Tribal Council community health position in Ahousaht and Hesquiaht, which I held for a number of years until taking a similar position serving remote west coast villages from Kyuquot/Checklesaht to Ditidaht. Mollie and I also committed ourselves to the community - running and leading local youth services, recreation and education programs, and theatre and arts projects. While working in community health and the arts, I also pursued graduate studies, ultimately earning my M.A. in 2013. I now run my own business as a full time professional artist, and was elected to town council in 2019.

Moving Tofino Forward

Focusing on community  •  Working together  •  Providing leadership

Let's do this, Tofino. I'm ready to be your Mayor. 

Our small town has grown to become a leading tourism destination - yet this success comes with its own growing challenges. Like many community members, I am concerned about our ability to sustain the quality of life and natural beauty which make Tofino so special. Thanks to the hard work of the Council, district staff, business owners and our dedicated community members, we have a solid foundation to tackle these issues. I am confident that with your support and my leadership, we can create a better tomorrow for Tofino, together.

    We’ve known Dan for years and he has become synonymous with Tofino for us. He is one of the best people we know. He helped us as we moved out here and has had an answer for any question we’ve had about the town and community. He knows the town and region like the back of his hand. He doesn’t just care about the town, he cares about the people who live here.
  • Pete Clarkson

    I've known Dan for 20 years. He’s got the right stuff to be a great mayor! 
    Positive, thoughtful, and never afraid to challenge the status quo.
  • Sarah & David Stoski and Family

    We're voting for Dan for mayor because we feel that he has the community's best interests at heart. He and his family have been here for a long time and he understands the challenges of living here, as well as what makes it so great. With his experience nursing, running a small business, and his time on council so far, he can navigate through the politics to bring his ethics and values to the table, and make it a better place for everyone and everything living within the Tla-o-qui-aht territory, and for those who visit as well.

    I had the opportunity to get to know Dan through his involvement in the Carving on Edge Festival. I found that he always came to our shared projects with creative thinking and a positive attitude. For several years he has hosted a hugely popular introductory printmaking workshop for families (always with one or two of his children helping out). As a mother, I appreciate that he understands the needs of our local families. And I believe his time working as a nurse in several of the Nuuchahnulth villages surrounding Tofino will guide his ability to strengthen our community to community relationships.
