The Penticton Women in Business is hosting a mayoral forum at their luncheon on Tuesday, Oct. 9.
The forum, presented by the Penticton Western News, received confirmation of attendance from all six candidates (James Blake, Jason Cox, incumbent Andrew Jakubeit, Jukka Laurio, John Vassilaki and Dominic Wheeler).
Each of the mayoral candidates will be seated at different tables to give those in attendance a chance to have one-on-one time with them prior to the start of the forum. Candidates will have two minutes to address the group, which will be followed by a question and answer period from those in attendance.
“We appreciate the candidates taking time to meet with local small business owners. This will give those in attendance the opportunity to learn more about the mayoral candidates platforms in this unique forum which offers not only a traditional format but one-on-one time with each candidate,” said Harpreet Sidhu, president of the Penticton Women in Business and community engagement Black Press Okanagan.
The forum is held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Sandman Inn in the Okanagan Room. Cost is $35 per person, which includes a buffet lunch.
