Jessacher wants city to grow safely and prosperously

City of Kelowna: Jessacher, Krista - council candidate seeks efficiencies in spending on city services

  • Oct. 28, 2014 2:00 p.m.

1) Spending at city hall has been made an issue in this election campaign. Why do you think the city is or is not spending taxpayers’ dollars efficiently?

Much in Kelowna is volunteer and non-profit based. On the topic of spending at City Hall, I would like to see greater efficiencies in services provided and level of service provided.

2) What do you think is the single most important social issue facing the city and how do you think city council should address it?

Helping Kelowna grow safely and prosperously, bringing renewal to the City with better parking, another Orchard Mall in the Mission, improved traffic flow, promoting tourism and good bus service

3) The recent Conference Board of Canada grade report for Kelowna had the city receiving a low or failing grade on many issues. Do you feel this report was an accurate reflection of our city? Why or why not?

Kelowna is a smaller community. It offers a different lifestyle from much larger big urban cities. To keep the younger community members and to promote friendly neighbourhoods, Kelowna needs to attract significant employers.

4) What in your background will allow you to deal with conflict within our community on issues that come before city council?

I have a legal/office background, including a law degree.

5) What personal characteristics do you think make you qualified to be a city councillor?

The voters are the best judge of that. This is a going to be a good municipal election with a great slate of candidates.
