Councilor Jayson Zilkie not searching for re-election in West Kelowna
A spot on West Kelowna city council has opened up ahead of October’s civic election.
Councilor Jayson Zilkie announced today that he would not be seeking re-election this fall.
Zilkie said he wouldn’t be seeking another term as he wants to spend more time with family and serve the community in other ways.
“When I was elected in 2018, I had two small children, Micah (4) and Amara (2). My wife Erin and I now have three children, Micah (8), Amara (6) and Izaiah (3),” Zilkie explained.
“Over the last few years, we have gone through the BC Ministry of Children and Family Development’s foster care training program and have recently been approved as foster parents.”
He noted that his family’s goal is to continue serving “the hurting and broken” both locally and in other suffering countries.
“There is no other place like West Kelowna and I have truly loved serving as a member of council,” he added.
“It has truly been an honor to serve this community, which I have called home since I was six years old.”
Zilkie expressed gratitude for all who have supported him during his four-year run on council.
