Change needed at RDOS

Thank you Tom Siddon for running for director of the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen in the Okanagan Falls area. The current RDOS dictatorship has got to go.

The RDOS does not want anyone with cars or collectibles in their yard. I have friends who have been harassed by the current leadership for having a few cars in their yard, even though their homes are remote and away from public view. They also keep changing the rules for clean-up times.

The RDOS has been giving themselves far too much power to control your private property. Too many men and women have fought and died for your freedom of rights and freedom of choice that includes your property rights.

People live in the RDOS and not the city so they can have their treasures in their back yard. After all who really owns your property? The RDOS think they own your property to tell you what to do with it. How soon is it that anything without a licence plate must be removed from your property? The current RDOS is on a mission to clean house on all RDOS property, anything that is not under a roof has to go. Does private property no longer have any meaning?

Thank God Tom Siddon is running for the director’s position in the Okanagan Falls area. Tom Siddon is more than qualified for this position, not only because of a lifetime in politics, but Tom is also a car enthusiast with some of the finest antique automobiles in B.C. and can relate to your property’s privacy and ownership. If you think you own your property and rights as private property, then a vote for Tom Siddon is a must. If you live in the Oliver area, then a vote for someone other than Allan Patton is a must. Government is obtaining far too much power, whereas the general public is losing far too many rights. It’s time to turn the tables
