Former mayor thanks another

Dear Editor:

I just want to express my sincere appreciation to Jake Kimberly for the very positive letter he wrote recently in your paper (Herald, Nov. 16).

He was very complimentary of actions taken during my term in office as mayor from 2002 to 2005.

Namely, the supporting of the referendum results with the introduction by our council, of a bylaw to prevent the future commercialization of park land.

As well as the historic agreement between the City of Penticton and the Penticton Indian Band that created a mechanism for communication between our two communities.

Thanks for the pat on the back, Jake. Keep those letters coming!

David Perry
