A newly formed group wants to focus attention on Summerland’s economy.

The Summerland Economic Improvement Group, made up of several business representatives, has sent a letter to the mayor and council candidates as well as the Summerland Chamber of Economic Development and Tourism.

“Our view is that Summerland should be and can be an economically prosperous community,” the group said in a recent letter to municipal council.

“We are serious about identifying solutions that will bring substantive and attainable change to improve the Summerland economy. This is not an effort to endorse or promote any candidate over another, nor is it an effort to cast blame or point fingers at any person or group.”

The group members include Robin Agur, Connie Denesiuk, Arlene Fenrich, Patrick Murphy, Maged Said, Mike Stohler and Mark Ziebarth.
