Stack speaks to FourChange endorsement

To the editor:

There have been several letters to the editor offering comment regarding the FourChange communication that went out last week. Many have asked my opinion on the matter.

I want to state that I have not requested an endorsement from any group, past or present. I read the story in the newspaper about this new group just like everyone else did.

It is my desire to stand for re-election based upon my record. If re-elected, I will bring the same dedication and perspective to my work on Council that I have exercised in the last three years.

Naturally, like anyone running for elected office, I am seeking support from all voters in the City of Kelowna. Currently, in Kelowna, we do not have a ‘party system’ of politics at the civic level. People are elected as individuals. They represent the entire city. This provides each councillor the opportunity to vote on each issue based on the merits of each issue. I think it works well and I believe I can be the most effective on council serving in this capacity.

I encourage all voters to select candidates for the strengths they bring to council. Elect council members that share your vision for the future of our great city and finally— let’s keep it positive!

Luke Stack,

Councillor,

City of Kelowna
