ForKelowna has chosen four additional Kelowna city council candidates to support in the upcoming civic election.

After sending out a questionnaire to all the new candidates and doing followup interviews, ForKelowna has announced it will throw its support behind Tracy Gray, Brad Sieben, Laura Thurnheer and Ryan Donn.

The group has already endorsed Colin Basran for mayor and incumbents councillors Maxine DeHart, Mohini Singh, Luke Stack and Gail Given. None of the council incumbents or Basran were required to participate in the candidate selection process.

ForKelowna said the candidates given its recommendation were based on their individual skill sets and “experience those candidates bring.”

“Over the last week, we completed our candidate researchy and short list interviews. Fro the interview process, ForKelowna used the skills and expertise of long term resident and human resources professional with over 30 years of experience in this field, Grant Stevens of (Kelowna) Flightcraft,” said ForKelowna in a press release.

“Mr. Stevens, along with members of the Steering Committee, conducted the interviews from a prepared list of questions.”
