Penticton’s mayor says he’s still unsure if he’ll run in the Nov. 15 municipal election.

Penticton’s mayor says he’s still unsure if he’ll run in the Nov. 15 municipal election.

“I haven’t decided,” Garry Litke said Wednesday.

“Right now, I’m really immersed in the Union of B.C. Municipalities and all the stuff that’s going on,” he said.

“There are lots of things, very active files, and I’m trying to complete them before I turn my mind to an election campaign.”

He said he expects to make a decision when he gets some “downtime” between the end of the UBCM convention on Sept. 26 and the Oct. 10 deadline to register as an election candidate. The nomination period doesn’t officially open until Sept. 30, although several people have already announced their intentions to run for mayor or council.
