Don’t know who to vote for in Oct. 20 mu­nic­i­pal elec­tions? We have sug­ges­tions

Ten first-time can­di­dates from the Okana­gan Val­ley who you may want to con­sider vot­ing for on Oct. 20

The Daily Courier - - FRONT PAGE -

In­cum­bents have a huge ad­van­tage (es­pe­cially in Kelowna; Sum­mer­land, not so much) when they seek re-elec­tion in mu­nic­i­pal pol­i­tics. It’s all name recog­ni­tion.

Peo­ple of­ten say they’d like to vote for some­one new, but don’t know who to vote for, and end up go­ing with rec­og­niz­able names (in­cum­bents).

We’ve been fol­low­ing the mu­nic­i­pal elec­tions for mayor, coun­cil and school board in the Cen­tral and South Okana­gan closely over the past month.
