All Candidates Forum

Post by beyondthis »

Didn't they learn from last time?? The Community Hall is not large enough to host a forum of this size! By the time you get all the candidates in there along with their families and other support people, there won't be enough room for any of us who would really like to attend to hear what they all have to say. This happened last time - many people were turned away. Hold the All Candidates Forum in a location where all people who want to attend can, without being told the facility is at capacity.

Perhaps posting a date and time for the event would help fill the hall...

The hall was basically full, but nobody was hanging from the rafters. I thought the format was a little off...the same 3 candidates answered the same question in the same order...the last of the 3 had a slight advantage and the order never changed.

I am running for School Trustee, just so everybody knows. Please visit my website : dansummers.ca
Not everything is run out of Victoria. The province gives the local district the money, the SD 23 spreads it around as it sees fit, and the principals run their schools - sort of like a branch office (to simplify to the extreme). But if there is ever a problem, you need an elected representative (i.e. somebody who answers to the voters) to be accountable, accessible, etc. I hope that I will get the chance to serve the voters of West Kelowna in this capacity.....Dan Summers
