Just over four months until Kelowna's civic elections..........so far the least employable Gail (Sympathy Vote) Givens is pointing towards running again for the "free unearned cash".

Although this means nothing on an anonymous forum, but I will be putting my name in. The current situation is beyond out of control and our City Managers have hand picked those that share their vision, creating perfect conditions for uninhibited and out of control growth. I have spent a career working for the CoK and now it looks like it will be a career to get them back on track. Our current council does not ask enough questions and, in my opinion, have completely failed Kelowna residents in favor of building for those that do not yet even call this place home.

I will put it out there right now that some might not be prepared for what I have to offer because I will be bringing some common sense and much harder questions to the council chambers should I get elected.

For those that haven't already identified me on here, I will be the grumpy looking candidate :smt045

That's exactly what we need. Common sense. Except one person's idea of "common sense" is far different from the next person's. We hear those words every election, along with the word "vibrant".

I've never heard a single politician use the word common sense. Are you just making things up. Maybe you could refresh our memory on which candidate actually said I'm going to use common sense if you can

Possibly it is time to push the current Mayor to the side? I wonder if he is the issue as he appears to cater to those on the lake.

Grumpy is far better than someone who looks 12 and insists on doubling property taxes to save the killer whales in okanagan lake.
There is a fine line between numerator and denominator, and only a fraction understands this.
