After weeks of campaigning election day has finally arrived.
Today, municipalities across the province elect their civic leaders.
Vernon will elect a new mayor, and while the four candidates running for the job all have leadership experience, none have held an elected official position.
On Oct. 10 Castanet held a discussion forum with the four mayoral candidates, Victor Cumming, Art Gourley, Erik Olesen, Darrin Taylor.
The candidates were asked if voters should be concerned that the city's next mayor does not have any elected official experience.
While you all have governance and leadership experience, some of you have even sat on city commissioned boards, committees or task forces, however, you don't have elected official experience.
Why should voters in Vernon not be concerned that their next mayor is lacking elected official experience?
