In his letter (Summerland Review Oct. 4,) Roy Roope states I failed to mention my nomination bid for the NDP in my mayoral candidate profile.
My unsuccessful bid was widely publicized at the time; I certainly have no reason to hide it two years on.
Roope continues by stating I neither delineated my vision, nor its cost to Summerland taxpayers.
Although my candidate profile was not the place to do so, I have publicly shared my vision a number of times.
Feel free to read it at www.tonibootformayor.com.
I grew up here, founded and operated two successful Summerland businesses, raised my family here, and have been an active volunteer for decades. I am deeply committed to my hometown. If elected, I will complete my four-year mandate because, as the mayor leading council, I can do more for Summerland than I can as any other elected official.
Coun. Toni Boot
