Such a dilemma: Dan Ashton as mayor or as MLA? Whether he likes it or not, he’s done a terrible job as mayor. He completely messed the bed on the OHA dorm scandal (note: try asking your bank for the keys to your new place and to be able to start demo/renos prior to paying for or securing the mortgage), has sold city assets versus raising taxes all in a ploy to make himself look good for just this — his provincial bid.
I’m sure he’s laughing at us all, how we’ve played into his hands. So Penticton, ignore him and the NDP candidate and vote for your local independent.
If you want change, make change. We need the mere 1.5 years left of Ashton, not another four years of him.
