Oh and she isn't starting this campaign off to well either … http://www.pentictonherald.ca/news/arti ... 02713.html

Like I said before folks … get the popcorn and beer out this movie is going to be good!


What about Boonstock? Is it because she refused to throw her support behind an event that left behind a legacy of comical organization, incompetent security, thousands and thousands of dollars worth of unpaid bills and the death of one concert goer?

I agree, RupertBear. Boonstock was a mess and I don't blame Katie one bit for what she said about it. She has the experience, is approachable and listens to people. Would be a good candidate to have on council again.

I think the local daily rag was unfair in their opinion of how she got media contact info. She has my vote for sure. :up:

I too agree with the last post on two fronts:
Robinson was correct in her assessment of Boonstock ... it was a mess. She just stated what 15,000 to 20,000 people were saying or thinking privately. Robinson did listen to citizens something the current Council only started to figure out when the polls showed they would not be re elected.
All the current Council must go ! Let’s never forget the division in the community they created.

As for the Hearld and Little Joe, he never writes anything positive unless it involves his dog. He and Millers “opinions “ are designed to influence voters against people running for office , Council members and Mayors they don’t like.
They have crossed the line around reporting for years. They try to shape and create the news not just report it... The Herald is the Penticton Enquirer or worse.

That's what I saw as well. He might have or it is just a typo from the city.

Or maybe they don't like him? [icon_lol2.gif]

After Friday it should all be official and we'll see where the chips fall. I'm just glad not to see Horejsi on the list. (so far)

Anyone who leaves things to the very last minute must have some serious reservations about their chances. Cox is not someone that appeals to me as our next mayor. Perhaps, just perhaps he is coming to his senses and realizes that his chances as winning as mayor are slim to none. He should try for councillor. Might just win a seat.

ps: who in the heck is Dominic Wheeler? (running for mayor, here).

Kimberley is running for council. Could be a very interesting campaign.

Yes very interesting. If I remember correctly didn't Cox and Jake have a somewhat verbal confrontation over the Skaha Park Issue?

Now Jake Kimberley ( re-tread ) is running for Council.

Isn’t he the former Mayor that overspend the budget by miles in building the South Okanagan Event Center ?
He says in his presser that” he is tired of writing letters to the editor “. Many of the fine citizens of Penticton are probably tired of his writing as well. Only thing worse is him on Council . He will undoubtedly try to run Council meetings without the gavel. Council meetings will take forever to complete with his regular bouts of verbal diarrhea.

"Last Minute Jason". Yep, he did file almost at the deadline. I also notice on his papers that he doesn't even live in Penticton but rather in Naramata! Not a requirement (since he owns a business in Penticton) but still not a point in favor of him at all. :up:

Final list and some surprises. Jukka again? Will he show his pages and pages of criminal charges? And there's also a former Green Party MLA candidate, exactly what we need.....?

So many running that it just gets watered down and will make those sitting on the fence (whether to vote or not) to stay home. This is not a good thing.
