Candidate for Area “G” welcomed by Olalla resident

Letter about Similkameen candidates and local election issues

To the Editor:

WOW! Talk about a hot time in the old town to -night.

With  seventeen candidates hoping to be elected or re-elected put their best foot and mouth forward during the evening of November 2, at Victory Hall in Keremeos.

A full house was welcomed  to the meeting by the competent Joan McMurray.

Some humor was projected into the meeting by candidate for Keremeos Council – the one and only now unforgettable Frank Kennedy.

When it came turn for the three Area “G” candidates to speak – it was newcomer Angelique Wood  who projected eloquently the feeling of trust – hope  and  direction we can all walk united  together in  the pristine valley of Olalla and the entire frontier of Area “G.”

Notice the first five letters in Angelique  spell Angel – could this energetic – intelligent young lady be the lighthouse that draws us near to change ?

I never thought it would happen in my life that I would support the ambition of any Porko  – but  supporting an Angel is entirely different  (eh).

Save for one thing I believe most residents in Area “G” desire little change  other than fixing what’s broke?

The one thing that concerns many of us  is the ugly words “unsightly premises” where a bylaw was introduced by a majority but well ignored by the incumbent no – show director of three long years of what?

How about this – All residents of Area “G” just get rid of the leaking  junk vehicles – garbage and  rotting debris that contaminates the very earth we live on and depend on for food  without the company of rats – mice and other vermin?

Together we can make it happen – so please vote for Angelique Wood for Director for Area “G”on November 19, to rid Area “G” of the dark clouds given to us by hopefully the out – going distasteful one.

Tom Isherwood, Olalla
