First challenger for mayor

Long-time West Kelowna resident, Stephen Johnston has thrown his hat in the ring as a candidate for mayor.  

“I love this community, I grew up here, my wife Leah and I are raising our children here, and I know how much potential this area has,” says Johnston.  

Johnston's press release says he is an entrepreneur and business owner with close to a decade of experience building custom homes throughout the Okanagan.

Johnston is a member of the board of directors for the West Kelowna Minor Baseball Association, and director of the the U9 baseball division. The mayoral candidate has also been on the leadership board at Emmanuel Church for the past four years.

Through his community involvement and business ventures, Johnston believes the community is ready to take big steps forward in solidifying its identity.  

“We’re at such a critical stage in West Kelowna’s development,” says Johnston. “The first six years were all about getting the municipality off the ground and setting up the necessary infrastructure, but now it’s time to move forward.”

Stephen is the first declared challenger to incumbent Doug Findlater.
