Are you tired of politicians not being held accountable for their actions and words? Do you think that those in city hall are not listening to the concerns of the people? Do you demand answers about the state of your city?
The Penticton Western News has your back as we bring you the next edition of Penticton Reads Mean Comments – Mayoral Edition. Mayor John Vassilaki faces some of his toughest criticisms from his constituents in this two-part video.
Watch as Vassilaki addresses his past as a businessman, his age and how that impacts his position, and some of the decisions his council have been praised and chastised for.
“I agreed to do this interview, if you want to call it that, because it’s important that the community knows the reasons why we do what we do. Not for them to speculate or give out misinformation to others – because that’s how problems begin,” said Vassilaki. “We want to make sure the proper information gets out into the community and they understand everything that’s happening.”
Vassilaki prides himself on being relatable and easy to talk to, and said the best way to reach him is by calling him directly. Stay tuned for part two of his interview this afternoon!
