TWO NOVEMBERS AGO, a new Kamloops City council was sworn in. They took an oath to “truly, faithfully and impartially” carry out their duties.
Good question. So, a brief review of the newbies is in order. I emphasize that these are observations by one council watcher, me. They can’t possibly do justice to the scope of the job or the totality of their work but they do touch on some of the key things the new councillors have been involved in.
SADIE HUNTER began as the least-known name on the new council. With the recent B.C. election, however, she just might have the highest current name recognition of any of the nine members.
