A Penticton business leader has announced his intention to run for Penticton city council.
Campbell Watt is a mortgage broker with Dominion Lending. He is also the president of the Downtown Penticton Association and the Penticton and Wine Country Chamber of Commerce. He was voted Business Leader of the Year in 2013.
Watt said the timing felt right to help with the leadership of the city.
"In another four years when I'm a touch older and my daughter is a touch older, I may have missed my window of opportunity," he said.
"The reason I'm running is that through the Chamber and the DPA, I've seen, as an individual, I can make a difference. I believe that I will bring positive change to city council and I really look forward to trying to do that."
He said one of his goals is to make it easier for businesses to open in Penticton.
The municipal election will be held Nov 15.
