Out with the old and in with the new. Basran and socialist council should be given the boot.

Basran is socialist?

Where are our free buses and bicycles?

Flexible bureaucrat. Business base eroded with free housing and free delivery of drugs for addicts.

Basran's unsafe streets and addict housing placement with no thought given to neighborhoods, says to me it's time for change.

Tom Dyas for Mayor.

Yes, Tom's platform whose central focus is to keep Costco in Kelowna. Sounds convincing. :smt045

Bob Schewe or Colin Basran.

Also no to the illegal weed dealer candidate.

Lol - interesting article. My inane initial takeaways:

1. Basran = typical catch-phrases - anything business, affordable housing, multi-sector economy, inclusive and diverse.
2. Dyas = small business, single dad, laundry at midnight, chamber prez 2.0, memorial cup.
3. Kennedy = small business, natural born leader, Eisenhower integrity, talks about self in third person.
4. Schewe = man of few words except to lament leaving city bureaucracy - of which he's attempting to get votes to rejoin.

2020 Memorial Cup, Mayor Dyas welcomes. Am I getting ahead of myself?

Unfortunately, I cannot vote for any of the mayoral candidates.

Basran and Dyas seem too much alike, so far.

The other two are barely marginal candidates.

Not my favourite candidate but it is true, we need to thank those willing to put their name forward for a public service job.

Here is Tom Dyas getting grilled by Gord Vizzutti:

Several serious unresolved concerns make me reluctant to vote.

1. The ballot counting machines are not audited by independent voters. For example, when I volunteered to help do this, Penticton city employee Laurie Darcus told me last week that this council "did not approve any manual couinting after the election." This is shocking since, by their own statements, a 10% independent audit would cost less than $500. This places the validity of our elections not really in question: there is no reasonable doubt that the machines can be tampered with and hacked. As an expert being interviewed on CBC said years ago: if the ballot machines can be compromised, they are being compromised.

2. Candidates for our government do not currently present their credentials as completely as a job applicant for Tim Hortons cashier position would. Joe Creron, Acting Kelowna City Manager wrote in April that property taxes alone bring in over $133 million. In Penticton, the Mayor and Council control over $77 million dollars this year. (These are pretty good reasons to manipulate and hack voting machines, aren't they?) Where are the candidates' employment records, credit reports, character references, police records posted? Nowhere that I can find. There is no way for the voters to make intelligent hiring decisions with the current system of Beauty Pageant Liar Contests that we call "elections".

3. The movement among governments to make laws compelling people to vote seems to me a clear indicator that they know the system is not trustworthy. We must be forced to participate so that elections will appear legitimate.

AS things stand, voting seems to make me an accomplice in the corruption of government, and the potential robbing of our people.

Yep vote for the idiot who wants to move city hall and build “social housing” on the current site. Tom Dyas is an a :cuss: hole, big deal he is a single dad, he talks like raising your own children is something special, it is what is expected/required when you have kids. He has said he wants a new city hall and new arts center among other things but how are we supposed to pay for this stuff? He is just doing what all politicians do, promise us everything at no extra cost. He knows he can’t deliver on his promises but will make them anyway to try and fool the gullible.
