Sorry to tell you, citizens of Penticton, you voted in the wrong person for mayor, it should have been John Vassilaki (Mr. Frugal) and you would have seen a different Penticton instead of all the mess we have going on now.
We have a council that is making such stupid decisions and we will pay for it down the road. I am sure many of us in Penticton have seen that nothing is being replaced or upgraded. Mayor Jakubeit, why are you mayor if you cannot get those silly poles moved out of the way of traffic at Industrial Avenue? That is the joke of the city. What is your job if you have no clout to do that simple task? Who runs the city, you or Fortis?
As for a new hotel, the El Rancho was the nicest and the best when I was a kid growing up here. Times have now changed, so let me ask Mr. Mayor why not buy that property and build the new hotel there instead of taking more green space?
I have said this before we now have these clowns in there for four years before we can throw them out. Mark Billesberger throw your hat in the ring for mayor next round and you will have my vote as I am sure that John Vassilaki is sitting back laughing and saying never again.
