A small business owner said a robust economy and job creation in Summerland are his priorities as he seeks election to municipal council.

A small business owner said a robust economy and job creation in Summerland are his priorities as he seeks election to municipal council.

“Good paying jobs in Summerland should be our priority,” said John Dorn. “We need to construct the right conditions to attract self-employed people and their families. Council must also foster an economic climate that enables current businesses to expand.”

Dorn has lived in Summerland since 2006 and has been involved in the community since that time. He is the past president of the Summerland Legion and the K-40 Club, the president of the Summerland Youth Centre Association and a life member of the Kinsmen Club of Canada.

He chose to run in the upcoming election during the discussions on the Urban Growth Plan, as audiences voiced their displeasure over the proposed land exchange.
