CHANGE IS COMING to Kamloops City council — more than half the current office-holders will be gone after the Oct. 15 civic election.
While there are some good candidates running to replace them, council is losing some good voices in the trade.
With this week’s announcement by Coun. Denis Walsh that he won’t seek another term, two solid incumbents in particular will be gone from the council table.
The other is Coun. Kathy Sinclair, who decided several months ago she wouldn’t run again.
