Why don't you just pick up the phone and call her to ask for clarification?

I do not agree that Walter "speaks his mind and is completely honest". I am not even sure what there is about him and what he has said in his campaign that you can use as support for that statement.

LOL - and I find it quite funny that someone with the user name of "kelowna lawyers" is posting here on CNet, too. Like, how many lawyers are you???

How can anyone not feel cheated. Voting for Sharon is a vote in the wrong direction for Kelowna.

Walter has my vote. Sharon last night was caught in a conflict of interest situation at the forum and live on AM1150. When asked a question on if she felt accepting funds from the firefighters was appropriate, she nervously answered, they support me and I support them.
Walter commented the below.
Sharon, "accepted campaign funds from the Firefighters Union. We spend about $12 million a year on our Fire Department Services. It worries me when she says "I support them, they support me". They are the second or third largest cost to the taxpayer!!"

Keep in mind Sharon has also been quoted at other forums saying she ONLY ACCEPTS campaign funds from very close friends and family. I guess the firefighters are close buddies too? Well then should be, she did authorize a nice pay increase for them.

I guess she will score good votes with the firefighter Union? This should not be allowed.

Please pass this along to all the Wally supporters who can only gossip and spread rhetoric to buy votes . . . THE CHEQUE WAS NOT FROM THE UNION. The cheque was from one individual who happens to be a retired firefighter. But just keep on spewing because you're starting to make the case yourself why Wally would be bad for business, citizens and Kelowna.

If you think Sharon is dishonest (from first hand experience I know she's not) and in conflict of interest; it would pale in comparison to: trouble-with-the-truth-bend-the-rules-Walt and his past dealings, and what he's about to do.

. . . voting for Sharon.

1) She doest respect the power of a proclomation and will sign anythign and do what she wants later. OCP and John Hindle Dr to UBC is one example

2) The tactics she is using in this election. Just look at a post to see what a sharon supports is really like and you can safely see a true sharon.

Example: Hootervile sharon taunted him into it

3) to much for lease downtown and her say there isnt anything wrong in down town. if she missed that what else did she miss :ohmygod:

I am voting Walter Gray

Here is the source and the link, thanks for coming out, but we all knew the truth all along.

http://www.sharonshepherd.ca/uncategori ... ssociation

Currently in question is a $500 contribution to the Mayors campaign, something I would guess all candidates are receiving in one form or another from their supporters. Yes, we the Kelowna Professional Fire Fighters gave the Mayor $500 which was returned with a thank you. At this point, a retired member of our association donated $500 of his own money towards the campaign in which we in return refunded his efforts.

To me there is a larger issue at stake, Public Safety, and those who support it.

Sincerely,

Larry Hollier, President L953, Kelowna Professional Fire Fighters
To be inspired.

Funny she forgot to mention that the cheque was returned to the Fire Fighters Union...... she was asked that quesiton live on the radio and failed to remember or recall that very important detail. Perhaps its because the cheque was returned AFTER the issue became public. In any event Sharon is not the leader Kelowna needs at this time... we need strong leadership and Walter Gray is clearly the best choice.

Sorry but you need to get the facts straight. It has been said many times it was returned . . . actually it was never accepted. We need strong leadership, not an old man who's campaign is built of misdirection and manipulation.

You need to take a look at some of the Gray supporters that just joined the forums to sling mud and start trouble such as yourself, the facts, Kathy something, justlooking4work, concerned business, etc, etc.
Example: Hootervile sharon taunted him into it

After Gray tried really hard to make her look stupid and failed.That was awesome!
