You go Sharon!


"Good luck. He's got three years and hopefully he carries the community forward. He's made some suggestions that he's got some ideas and I guess the community will look forward to hearing those. I never heard anything exact, it was a lot of broader suggestions so it will be nice to see some specifics."

The advance polls had the highest number of voters, I believe this shows people need that convenience to get out and vote, I hope they keep the early advance polls and the three days. Also next time we may be voting in October and the weather may not be as much as a factor.

And my last comment on this election ...

Never in all my days, working on elections as a journalist, with candidates on their campaigns and as an elected official myself, have I ever seen such an absolutely dirty campaign as what the Gray side ran against the other candidates. Anyone who was a part of all those smears, slams, dirt digging and lies should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves. You know who you are and you disgust me.

I will be very happy to see all these election threads get locked up tight and descend into the dusty archives.

I haven't finished yet with the chickens. Join me in my fight.

And I am about to start on affordable rental housing for low income workers. Join me in this one, too.

You know where to find me.

LOL, a local artist had this to say on facebook:

kelowna tossed him out 6 years ago. Voted him back in at the ripe old age of 71. How screwed up is this city?? He wont make re-election, the whole city will flop around for 3 years, Mr Moving forward will accomplish dick all in that time frame.

How sad it is.

Thank God I moved across the bridge last week. Ay least my tax dollars are not going to a new mercedes for the mayor to drive ( which was Walters last mayor car)


Enjoy Kelowna, you have you wish

Judging by the line ups I seen today, I would have thought it would have been more then 33%. Maybe the long lines were a bit of a discouragement to some voters. perhaps more polling stations next time round.

Take the survey the last page you can add comments to improve the process, more polling stations is a good one, I suggested better polling locations in Rutland,,

I predict that Walter will not run again, and neither would have Sharon had she won. So Walter 's got to work fast to make the bed for the next mayor . . . ANDRE! (I think I just made myself sick). Also I'll be surprised not to see the disingenuous traits
Walter exhibited in his past tenure, and just how independent of influence the new councillors elect claim they'll be.

Wow, sour grapes, how classy. If you felt so strongly, maybe YOU should have run... But then again, maybe you did. :)

Sharon didn't lose on a dirty campaign. She lost because she didn't have vision and leadership. She is a lovely lady. But she was backed by a slate of spineless numbwits. As a result, they are gone too.

Good luck Sharon. Enjoy your time away from the nasty world of politics. The one where everyone who serves, or wants to serve, has a target on their back by the givers and takers.

That's not sour grapes, Honey. For someone who doesn't even live in Kelowna or get to vote here, you did your share of smear and misinformation. I won't forget you.

No, my days in public office are over. I did not run and I will not in the future, either. I'll nail *bleep* to crosses from behind the scenes and make sure they are accountable to the masses not just their buddies.

Much like how the electorate held Sharon accountable. Not to mention her flock.

How badly were their *bleep* nailed to crosses?


The vote means incumbents James, Craig, Hodge, Reid-Nagy and Michele Rule failed to win re-election, the largest turnover ever of incumbents in a Kelowna council election.
