Yes, good question, Southy. Nothing in that story mentions staying in Penticton. Perhaps CTF has some inside info?

Also, its my opinion that Weeb and Vass may not see eye to eye on many upcoming issues. Weeb likely was tired of politics and found as good or better job in the private sector without the BS that goes on in the big white house.


Mr.Weeber will be working for Mr.Kampe at Peter Bros.

That info just became public yesterday. It is nice to know that someone competent will be managing David Kampe's legacy and support for everything Penticton.
If it's not obvious....this is succession planning. Cheers to you Dave Kampe.

Well that is wild speculation to say the least. Why did you put quotations on "health concerns?"

Sorry Jak buddy. The guy has been on a Mediterranean diet all of his life. He looks pretty fit to me. His 90 something yr old mother is still voting too.
Besides all of that, your comments and obvious wishes of health issues are pathetic and woefully transparent. You are looking like you may have been Jak's campaign manager.

Would you rather say:
"Thank you Penticton, but I've bitten off a bit more than I can chew here, I'm sorry I wasted everyone's time in running for Mayor, subsequently winning and now not being able to fulfil my duties, I see that this is over my head and I can no longer continue as your Mayor."

OR

"Due to health concerns, I am not able to perform my duties as Mayor in the capacity that Penticton citizens expect, unfortunately I must resign my position."

If it was me, I'd pick number 2.

I'm sorry, I think you're misunderstanding what I'm getting at.
I don't wish health problems on anyone.
I'm only saying that usually when a Politician has to back away from something they always come up with colourful excuses, health concerns being a top reason they use.

Sorry if anyone else thought I was wishing ill will on someone, that wasn't my intention.

Cheers! :sosorry:

Vassilaki has been in municipal politics longer than most of us have lived in Penticton. He's finally in the big chair and he is going to eat up every minute of it, come hell or high water. He has thicker skin than you seem to think.

Just because he doesn't fit your bill, having sour grapes isn't going to fix anything. This mayor and council actually has a chance to be more fiscally prudent than any we've seen in a long time thanks to its diversity.

You are a Troll. Get over the fact that your candidate lost. Quit trying to invent health concerns or state them publicly where you might be subject to legal scrutiny. Troll coward.
