LETTERS: Citizens have your say

Show Mayor Jakubeit and council that the silent majority can become the vocal majority in an instant.

Show Mayor Jakubeit and council that the silent majority can become the vocal majority in an instant.

Make your voice known to this apparently deaf council. If you voted for these councillors, give them a piece of your mind and hopefully change their mindset.

Don’t like your name in print, here is your alternative — contact your council members by email or telephone. Insist on a call back if they refuse to answer your call.

Residents of Penticton, please attend the meeting arranged by Cliff Martin on Monday, July 20 at 5 p.m. on the steps of City Hall (mark your calendar or set up a reminder for that date). Give him your support in his attempt to save your park before the bulldozers start to move into the park.

Citizens should have the final say on whether or not city parks should be converted to private business assets, the citizens should have  a veto vote by way of a referendum on retention of green space.
