To bring industry to a community that is in a depression is my goal. With industry brings jobs, with jobs brings wages, with wages brings families, with families brings housing needs, school taxes, groceries, clothing, extra activities, etc!  The real estate market would get a boost with affordable housing as an incentive to buy.  We need to see Penticton as a starting point for families to live, work, and retire in a community that can offer all.
