Perrino to pursue second mayoral term

Current Summerland mayor Janice Perrino is running again for the mayor’s job in the Nov. 19 municipal election.

Current Summerland mayor Janice Perrino is running again for the mayor’s job in the Nov. 19 municipal election.

She wants to work over the next three years on bringing new jobs to the area, helping local businesses prosper and reversing Summerland’s population decline.

Perrino points with pride to Summerland council projects from the past three years, including Prairie Valley and Rosedale road construction, the RCMP detachment currently under construction, the new zoning bylaw changes and environmental programs.

“Although BC has been on an economic downtrend I intend to keep Summerland on an optimistic path for the future,” said Perrino.

“I feel Summerland has taken a real turn around for the better.”

‘I have been deeply honoured to represent Summerland over the past three years and have found the experience of being mayor both challenging and incredibly rewarding,” she said.

“I have enjoyed every day of this work over the past three years. I’m thrilled to be running again.”

Perrino served as a Summerland councillor from 2002 to 2005 and from 2005 to 2008. Committee activities include the Parcel Tax Roll Review Panel, ex-officio member of the finance committee and ex-officio member of the engineering services committee. Outside of Summerland council work, she is also executive director of the South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation.
