So far, two fine gentlemen. Terry Lake and Al McNair, have announced their desire and willingness to be the next Mayor of Kamloops. It will be a hard decision for the community to make, and many even say it is likely other good Mayoral candidates will emerge.
I plan to link to all other city council candidates' web sites and their various announcements and news throughout the next months.
In that spirit, want to let people know that Terry Lake is holding a Youth issue's forum tomorrow night, Wednesday, August 31st. It is closed event - only for youth between ages of 15 to 19. He sent the following email to the TRU faculty email list:
I will be hosting a youth issues forum this Wednesday at 8 PM at Ruth's
Cafe (348 Seymour). If you know anyone aged 15-19 that would like to
attend this session designed to find out what municipal issues are
important to youth, please reply via e-mail.
I totally believe youth input is critically important to our city. I hope I can work with Terry to organize a citywide Youth Kamtalk conference.
