Former Penticton mayor Jake Kimberley has filed his paperwork to run for city council.
In an announcement Thursday, he said he’s no longer happy just writing letters to the editor about city hall.
Kimberley was a vocal opponent of city council during the Skaha Lake waterslide debacle, which he mentioned in his announcement. He also singled out economic development zones and parking and traffic issues at the South Okanagan Events Centre as sore spots for the community.
Kimberley, who is 79 according to his Facebook page, was elected to council twice in the 80s and mayor in 1990, 1993 and 2005.
Kimberley joins an increasingly crowded field running for council, with 19 people formally running so far with nominations being accepted until Friday.
