Ken Barry asks the City Councillor, Mayor Candidates

As Kamloops pays the lion’s share of the TNRD funding and has six representatives on its board how do you feel about the CAO picking up $117,000.00 in overtime to add to his salaried $206,000.00 pay.

William James Turnbull

I personally feel ill over it. Perhaps my gut reaction is unfounded. In my view the co - ordinated relief effort two years ago during the fires was poor by those in charge of executing it. The citizens quickly picked up the slack.

Dale Bass

I would need to know what requirements led to such a large overtime payment.

Stephen Karpuk

This is a concern of mine. I am not sure how the contract is structured, but I think if he was entitled to the overtime, then the he should get what he got. However, my experience is that management does not get bonuses for overtime because they are not paid hourly and the contracts usually reflect requirements to do job duties regardless of time required. I would like know more.

Thank you for the question. Please get out the vote October 20th.
