Martin said city needs to take advantage of PRH expansion

City of Penticton: Martin, Andre — Council candidate answers how he will identify problems and opportunities to help the economy.

One of my priorities is to ensure the community takes full advantage of the PRH expansion.

Council can co-ordinate information sessions to ensure that businesses and homeowners are informed of every opportunity and are ready to host the influx of workers. A shortfall of qualified workers may happen as boomers retire and marketing why workers should come to Penticton is a must to attract a strong stable workforce for our employers.

We must also develop a Business Roadshow to tag along with our existing businesses that travel the globe promoting the opportunities and favourable business climate.
