WE HAVE A COUPLE OF OPTIONS out there, so let’s talk about it: who do we want to be the next mayor of Kamloops?
Unfortunately, his tenure will be remembered for wildfire disaster response in 2018, for building crises in housing, mental health and substance use taking its toll on the streets of the city, and for two-plus years dealing with the impacts of a global pandemic.
Even so, they haven’t allowed voters to remember those ribbon-cutting positives that dotted the past term, either.
Mel Rothenburger is a former mayor of Kamloops and a retired newspaper editor. He is a regular contributor to CFJC Today, publishes the ArmchairMayor.ca opinion website, and is a director on the Thompson-Nicola Regional District board. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
