Peachland Advocate represents 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 politicians should not ask for your vote, then once elected, do as they please. These times are 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 often lose hope and give up the fight. Watching the systematic mangling of our Official Community Plan in the short five years that I’ve been here has been a horrid example of this kind of abuse.
We hope that by shining a bight light on the matters that influence our governance, we will be able to help expose rogue actors in this game.
