Second Candidate For Vernon Mayor

Victor CummingThere is now a second declared candidate for mayor of Vernon, with more to come.

The latest is Victor Cumming, an economic researcher and regional economist.

Cumming says it's something he's wanted to do for some time.

"A number of people have been encouraging me over the last number of years and earlier it just didn't fit with my life and family and now it's a much better position," says Cumming.

Cumming says he thinks Vernon needs skilled competent people as mayor and council, and hopes more will join the race.

"Over the past decade, I have continued to teach community economic development for Simon Fraser University. Today, our firm works primarily with local, regional, and First Nation governments in Canada to provide economic development, integrated planning, and business establishment and operation assistance."

"I am fortunate that I am now in a position to offer my time and energy to fill the Mayor's chair, and to serve the community where we chose to raise our family and grow our business. If elected, I will immediately wind down my professional responsibilities to focus my attention on the full‐time role of mayor," says Cumming in a news release.

Cumming is the second to declare, joining former councillor Klaus Tribes who announced his intentions back in April.

Kiss FM News has learned a third candidate will join the race Friday.
