Ryan Donn (incumbent)
Kelowna Councillor

Kelowna gave me their vote of confidence and elected me to City Council in 2014.It's been a gift to serve Kelowna this past term. Many years before our family moved to the Central Okanagan from Scotland in 1991. I think we often forget as Canadians just how tough it is to become Canadian. Its a gift I cherish and drives me to fight for the best for our community daily. I have had the opportunity to work with children with disabilities as a CEA at SD#23 and the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs. We have shared our home with an adult with disabilities for the past 14 years under a contract with CLBC.
Over the past decade I have had the gift of creating or programming some of the most loved cultural events/activities we have in the Central Okanagan including:
Music in the Park, West Kelowna, to do this I founded the non-profit Creative Okanagan that will be producing the upcoming Breakout West Conference.
Pianos in Parks , Arts on the Avenue, Buskers on Bernard, and New York New Years, Kelowna
Winter Blues Festival, Lake Country

My passion for arts and culture is rooted in my career as a singer/songwriter. My songs have been played on the radio, in prime time shows in the U.S., and helped me meet my wife. I’m married to Kimberly Donn and we live in a nook of Kelowna behind the airport with our two daughters, Bella and Lyla.
I ran a boutique social media marketing business, Nudge Media, for a few years before joining Kelowna City Council. That skill has been very helpful as I have aimed to stay connected with the public over this past council term.
