It is time to vote yes for a future for Vernon and the North Okanagan on the upcoming referendum to borrow funds for a sports and track facility.
Our previous and current politicians who were elected had an opportunity to lead our community’s future and have continued to defer forward vision regarding infrastructure improvements and responsibility of maintenance of what we have, and providing facilities that will draw business and families to Vernon.
Too many short-term opinions have been expressed with little thought to the future of Vernon. This referendum is about providing and planning for you, your kids, grandkids, and the future viability of attracting business and families to Vernon. If you choose to use it yourself, it may help alleviate health care costs and overcrowding at VJH.
The no voices have made it clear they are happy letting our town and facilities continue to die off and fade away. The time for leadership and growth in our city is now and this needs to be a start in a forward direction.
