Papadopoulos wants to see younger faces on council

If elected, Daniel Papadopoulos will be one of the youngest faces at Summerland council.

If elected, Daniel Papadopoulos will be one of the youngest faces at Summerland council.

And though the 26-year-old has only lived in Summerland for a year, he isn’t new to the community.

“I pretty much grew up coming here every summer and I have been going to council meetings for quite a while now, said Papadopoulos.

“I am just interested in giving my input.”

Papadopoulos has noticed there aren’t as many young people in the community anymore, and thinks younger faces on council would give it some diversity.

Along with working as a glassworker, Papadopoulos is a landowner, with two properties in Mission and another couple in downtown Summerland.

“I rent them out, so I am currently managing all that,” he said.

While he is not willing to take a position on the land swap issue, Papadopoulos did say he has been talking to people and getting ideas about what they want.

“It’s a really nice community, it’s quiet, it is very safe. I get to see people in the street and say hi to them and they know me,” he said. “I think the downtown, it would be nice if it was a little bit busier and people were out a little later.”
