Denis Walsh (City Councillor Candidate)

I choose Denis Walsh as my City Councillor because he doesn’t shy away from hard topics. He is willing to question provincial and even national motivations, keeping these levels of government aware of what matters for the quality of life of Kamloops residents. We need leaders who are willing to put themselves out there, say what no one else is saying, take a forward-thinking way of advocating not only for the Kamloops of today but also the Kamloops of a hundred years from now. This is why Denis Walsh gets my vote on October 20th.

As well, Stephen is concerned with the ethical and moral viewpoints and actions of municipal politics.

What’s more important, an individual building the economy or the economy building individuals? We have plenty of leadership in multiple sectors integrating innovative ideas that in turn bolster our community. I am very grateful for these people and excited for the next 10 years in Kamloops. If a mayor thinks they can lead with change in these areas in mind, I think they are mistaken these areas are thriving and healthy. There is however growing disparity and uncertainty surrounding the health of individuals in our community. How is it ok to celebrate the wins of economic growth on one corner, when on a corner across the street people are facing seemingly insurmountable challenges such as accessing shelter, food, and health care? Therefore in my eyes a direct approach needs to be undertaken to get people housed and I think this is the best solution for our community. If we can come together to solve one of the largest crisis of our time, then I think we can accomplish anything as a community. This is exactly why I am endorsing Mr.Turnbull. He will tackle an incredibly challenging task head on and I think he has the gumption needed to see it through.
Let’s stop this collective cognitive dissonance once and for all where we think one part of our home bing on fire is ok if another part isn’t. If there is disease in a body going unchecked. We are a body of people so let’s act like it!

I have complete trust in William James Turnbull's ability to represent our city as mayor. His work as president of the downtown neighborhood association demonstrates an ability to conduct meetings, advocate for others, and work cooperatively to get things accomplished.

What I like about Bill personally is his empathy and compassion for all people. His sense of humour and welcoming attitude would set a more positive tone at City Hall. With that infectious energy I believe he can be the leader that redoubles our efforts to address crime, homelessness, and the opioid drug crisis.

He cares to the core about Kamloops and its citizens and wants City Hall to be better at being transparent and fiscally responsible.

Bill believes in building up and maintaining infrastructure in Kamloops which has greatly lacked in recent years. People need sidewalks in all neighbourhoods, roads free of pot holes for the safety of our cyclists and drivers as well as increased snow removal in the winter so our parents and seniors can safely get around and make appointments.

A vote for Bill Sarai is a vote for positive change in Kamloops. He undoubtedly has my vote and if you've ever talked to Bill I'm sure he'll have yours as well. He's so approachable that for anyone who hasn't gotten to meet or interact with him, I urge you to contact him or view his campaign Facebook page to get a better idea of just how involved in the community he is.

By doing so, Dale will bring a new level of transparency and accountability to council chambers.

A LETTER OF ENDORSEMENT.
To the Great People of Kamloops,
I have lived in Kamloops since 1970. In that time I have seen our city grow. Kamloops is a great place to live. I have had my business here for over forty years and have done very well locally. My company has always tried to be a strong corporate citizen, helping various organizations here in Kamloops. Over the past four or five years, I have become increasingly concerned about the anti-business sentiment coming from our current city council. Current city council doesn’t seem to have a vision of where or how they would like to see our city develop and grow. I hear lots of rhetoric about bringing good clean high tech jobs to our community. That would be great, but we are in competition with every other community in the world for those jobs. So why would those type employers locate in our city when we consistently demonstrate an unwillingness to work with potential employers? It is time for a change on our City Council. I have met with Carol King and found her to be a woman of great passion for making things better for the people in Kamloops. She has a vision for Kamloops. “Getting to Yes”. While others talk she takes action. She has taken it upon herself to get dirty needles off the streets. She understands both the needs of Business and the plight of people struggling to get by. I am strongly endorsing Carol King for City Council. The time is now for a real change locally. Finally, whether you agree with me or not, get out and vote. Our city is worth your time and energy.

Sadie Hunter (City Councillor Candidate)

If I had to pick two adjectives to describe Sadie, they would be dedicated and community-minded. When we first crossed paths I was impressed by her commitment to, and support of, her son. She was very clear in her communication and always interested in hearing about, and supporting, his school work. Twelve years later I continue to admire her dedication but at this time it is to her community. She is always ready to listen to an issue or an idea and constantly considers how to improve her community and offer additional opportunities to those she supports. Sadie works hard, she is creative, she listens carefully, and she is respectful and honest. These are all characteristics that Kamloops needs on city council. Sadie Hunter has my vote.

I happily endorse Arjun as he seeks re-election to Kamloops city council. Not only do I respect his commitment to community engagement and how he fosters a healthy Kamloops culture, but I think that his transparency is refreshing. Arjun approaches each issue that comes before him with an open mind. Whether you agree or disagree with him, he will always explain his rationale. This is someone I've seen walk the talk! I'll vote for Arjun and I hope you will too!
