John Vassilaki

Independent for Penticton Mayor (incumbent)

1. I will continue the momentum that we have started for decreasing crime.
2. I will continue to address housing by introducing zoning changes.
3. I want to focus on our assets. The city has resources to coordinate & leverage land for working citizens, seniors and students.

My reason is simple. I have the most experience with 4 consecutive terms as a Councilor and one 4 year term as your Mayor.
