Depends who he's running against. Are they going to dig up Walter Gray a second time?

We've had more than one Kelowna Mayoral race that was virtually uncontested.

For all the complaints and insults toward him that I read here, I wonder if people's lives (including those who want him out) are actually better, worse, or the same since he took over.
God forbid you ever had to walk a mile in his shoes
'cause then you really might know what it's like to sing the blues.

People are stupid.
They'll vote for whichever campaign spent the most money, just like they did in the last election.
Is the world getting stupider, or is it just getting easier for stupid people to have their thoughts heard?

I don't know yet, would depend on campaign platforms and believability of the candidates.
I haven't failed until I quit.

Yup - I'm sure you will - there is always someone who runs around with their "eyes wide shut"!

I can see him being re-elected. He hasn't screwed up anything in a major way, city is growing, lots of development happening, so he'll have no problems getting re-elected.

Work out of province live here. Council and mayor appear to be on a sjw rampage. Someone needs to stop this. Wish i could run for council. Unfortunately i have a checkered past and would not be able to hold a position of public office. I got caught with weed about 10 years ago.

jflem 1983. If you have a checkered past you just might win because of it. You would be more normal and real than most of the other fake people who pretend they're perfect.
the smartest person in the room usually isn't the one talking the most but rather talking the least ;)

City Council is not unlike the Senate. You pretty much need to keel over dead or be accused of a major crime before anything changes. It is less to do with competence and more to do with the lethargy of the typical voters. They tend to vote for a name that they recognize, rather than go to the trouble of learning about potential candidates. This happens everywhere - not just Canada. How else could you explain Sonny Bono, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Donald Trump, Justin Trudeau, and many more?
