Lindsey Bell, Jeff Piattelli, Mark Boyer, too. Some good fresh candidates in this election. Lindsey Bell has Peachland council experience. :up:

Well last election he said he was going to run for office this time around, so I assume he is. All you got to do is look for the big dude in his late 30s.

Lindsey Bell is very enthusiastic about becoming a councillor. She said she LOVES committees, and the more the better. That's kind of a red flag for me, so NOPE.

I do like Mark Boyer's answers though, and Jeff Piattelli made a good impression.
I haven't failed until I quit.

Committees are great and do serve several valuable purposes WHEN they are implemented properly and appropriately.

Unfortunately, K-town city committees are often limited to 'professionals' (rather than a mix of business people and regular average joes) and 'consulting the public' generally includes limited wording in questions and answers so the answers will be swayed towards a particular direction.

Journey Home sounds great but will the city and council actually listen, hear, and act upon what the committee finds as priorities? Doubtful...

I too am leaning towards Jeff, Charlie, Brad Sieben, and Loyal so far and I haven't decided on the rest yet...I was at a Council meeting where several incumbents and the Mayor appeared to be frustrated with Charlie Hodge who asked questions during the meeting and didn't vote with them - Good for him!
