Responses show that challengers for mayor’s job are not up to date on city business

I was not alone in being disappointed by the other candidates answers (or rather, lack of them) to Sharon Shepherd’s questions.

To the editor:

I attended the Mayoralty Debate at the Mary Irwin Theatre Wednesday evening, and was not alone in being disappointed by the other candidates answers (or rather, lack of them) to Sharon Shepherd’s questions “What do you feel are the most significant changes in the recently adopted OCP (Kelowna Official Community Plan) that sets the course for the next 20 years, and how will you implement these changes?”

These are important questions, but not one other mayoral candidate was even remotely familiar enough with the plan to seriously answer them, even to the slightest degree.

How can we take these candidates seriously if they haven’t even bothered to familiarize themselves with the plan before asking to lead in it?
