BY-ELECTION – Mayoral candidate Hilke outlines campaign platform

With the Labour Day long weekend upon us and the campaign for the Sept. 30 Kamloops civic by-election underway, welcomes statements and news releases from candidates for the mayoralty and two City council seats.

  1. Thanks you, but, a list of your interests does nothing to inform the voting public of your plans, your thoughts or your actual platform.
