Andrew Jakubeit is running for City of Penticton mayor.

I will create a Mayor’s Select Task Force to create actionable solutions for Economic Innovations, Affordable Housing and Tourism (all key elements for economic vibrancy).

I would like to create a small committee to work with our Economic Development officer to help fine tune initiatives and leverage opportunities. I want to have a monthly Mayor’s Breakfast with business leaders and have council tour one business per week to better understand, promote and celebrate what Penticton has or can offer.

We need to do a better job of going to the people instead of waiting for them to come to us.
