Jason Wiebe, acclaimed Village of Keremeos candidate

Candidate will serve second term on council

First off let me say thank you to all those who have made my first term in office a meaningful and personally life-changing experience. It has been a privilege to serve our community in this role and I hope that I have been able to contribute to our village as much as I have received over these past four years.

We have seen some challenges over the last term, but we have also benefited from some incredible work by our staff. From the exercise equipment in Memorial Park, to the accessibility upgrades and overall improvements of our water park as well as the ongoing repairs and upgrades to our sewer treatment plant and the downtown revitalization.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to represent our village once again. I am hoping to make further progress with the village’s plan to upgrade our street lighting to LED, work to improve the quality and diversity of our local trails, further develop the profile and relationships Keremeos has outside of our boundaries and to work with the village office and council to bring further upgrades in line with our strategic planning. I appreciate the opportunity to add to the knowledge and experience gained in my first four years. Thank you.
