Ouellette to run for mayor

Incumbent Mayor Sharon Shepherd will face a familiar foe when she seeks a third term as mayor in November’s civic election.

Kim Ouellette, who challenged Shepherd in 2005 and 2008 has announced she will run for Kelowna mayor for a third time.

Three years ago, with little or no public profile other than that fact she ran in the previous election, Ouellette was Shepherd’s only opponent. She garnered 24 per cent of the vote. Voter turnout in 2008 was very low, with only about 16 per cent casting ballots.
