KELOWNA – Another councillor has announced she will be on the ballot again this November.

Maxine DeHart is the third and most recent sitting councillor to declare her intentions to run as an incumbent in the municipal election next month.

In a media release, DeHart says she will focus her campaign on continuing the work she started in her first term.

“I believe Kelowna is a better place to do business, a safer place, and a better place to enjoy a healthy lifestyle, than it was 3 years ago. But there is more work to do and I am seeking re-election to continue working to improve our community,” she says.

If elected, she says she will also make public safety a priority by ensuring RCMP have the resources they need and by applying pressure to the provincial and federal government to work harder at controlling repeat and high-risk offenders.

First elected in 2011, DeHart joins current councillors Luke Stack and Mohini Singh in declaring their intentions to run again November 15.
