Picton will push for sports tourism fund

City of Penticton: Picton, Max Council Candidate answers how to boost sports and other alternate types of tourism

While a seat on council would force me to step down from the tourism chair, it would not prevent me from continuing to work closely with the organization. We would continue to push forward on the programming we have implemented, such as development of our regional strategies, strong support for our new air travel east and existing air travel west, revamped stakeholder opportunities, and more.

I will ensure that adequate funding remains available for this organization and that we approve the budget request for the sport tourism fund to further establish ourselves as the sporting mecca within the BC interior.
