The New Peachland Advocate will be a new kind of tool. We won’t focus as much on news and events, but will focus more on the politics of running a town of this size.
We feel that the times when politicians could court your vote, then once elected just do as they please, is over! Citizens often don’t realize the power they have in numbers. They are constantly beaten down by bureaucratic red tape and obfuscation to the point where they lose hope. Watching the systematic mangling of our Official Community Plan in the short five years that I’be been here has been a horrid example of this abuse.
We hope, by shedding light on the matters at hand, we might be able to reign in any rogue elected employee.
