Councillor candidate wishes to set record straight

Council candidate in Keremeos concerned about erroneous rumours

To the Editor:

To the people of Keremeos:

It has come to my attention that rumours are being spread that Frank Kennedy and I are working together. Nothing would be farther from the truth.

I stand for honesty, integrity and accountability.

Now onto just issues.

I would like to see needless spending stopped so we can start a saving plan for the wastewater plant. So in the future there will not be a huge impact on the taxpayers. I would like to have the potholes on the edges of our asphalt filled soon so as to support the pavement before more breaks away and repaving will be the only way to repair it at a huge expense. I was told this would cost $60,000 at the last council meeting. Boy, would I like that contract. Unbelievable!

Some concern has been that I live outside the Village of Keremeos and do not pay as much taxes. When my septic gets full I pay to have it pumped out and the village is paid for the waste service. If a village water pump burns up the residents feel no effect or disruption of service. But I must replace my own pump for $3,200. Just two years ago. You get snow removal. I have in the past started my tractor up and clear ¼ mile of road so the neighbours and I can get our vehicles out to go to town.

I drive on the village streets, but I also support the local businesses. My address says Keremeos and this is where my heart is.
