West Kelowna votes 2018: Jayson Ziklie runs for council

West Kelowna goes to the polls Oct. 20

“I’ve been lucky to call West Kelowna home for most of my life and am so grateful to be raising my family here. Like many of you, my wife Erin and I enjoy the recreation and nature that surrounds us. We love the feeling of running into familiar faces at the grocery store. We appreciate that our friends and family in other neighbourhoods are never far away. The convenience of a smaller city and that rare sense of community that comes along with it means a lot to us – and I bet it does to you too.

It’s to be expected that a growing young municipality would experience the challenges and problems that have become familiar and frustrating to West Kelowna residents. How do we, as a city, work through the growing pains and overcome the issues that get in the way of West Kelowna reaching its full potential? How do we build a foundation for the future, and establish West Kelowna as a place where businesses and families can grow and thrive?

I believe answering these questions begins with City Council.

Council is the bridge between the residents and the City’s services. I will work to provide West Kelowna residents with a council that ensures municipal services have the ability to keep up with growth, through Leadership, Planning, Funding and Collaborative Partnerships. I will work to improve the culture at City Hall by building into the staff and leadership. As your councillor, I will strive to support staff by providing the necessary tools and resources,” he said.

Zilkie plans to work toward economic development, improve safety, promote community identity and build collaborative partnerships.
