A concern about the number of empty business buildings in Summerland led Joel Gregg to run for a spot on municipal council.
“I’d like to see Summerland succeed,” he said. “I’m concerned about all the vacancies I see on Main Street and throughout the community.”
He said at present there are few employment opportunities within the community for recent graduates.
Gregg’s background is in business administration. Since 2005, he has been the practice manager at Jubilee Dental Centre and since 2013 he has owned Jubilee Fitness Club.
“I be-lieve in practicing common sense and intend to put the interests of our community as a whole ahead of any self-serving proposals,” he sad.
“I’m willing to listen to all sides of the issues at hand, and will evaluate what I believe to be best for us all in the long run.”
