Why I am running for Mayor

I believe that we live in a beautiful community. My family and I have been a part of Vernon for over 40 years and I would love to have the opportunity to play a larger role in helping shape the future of this wonderful City. Please check out the “About” page to learn more about my background.

What would I like to see in Vernon over the next four years and beyond?

I, like you, would love to see Vernon continue to grow as a vibrant and healthy community. A community that enhances the quality of life of its citizens and be a place where our children and grandchildren can stay and raise their families.

I believe we can have a community that:

  • is safe, secure and affordable;
  • is dynamic, with a vibrant and resilient economy, and has ample employment opportunities for all;
  • is one where real harmony exists between various stakeholder groups
  • has adequate and easily accessible recreation facilities to meet the diverse needs of its citizens; and
  • where culture and arts are actively promoted and appreciated.

How do we do this?

I believe we, as a community working together, can accomplish this through a balanced approach:

  • Economic Development – making Vernon a place where local businesses can thrive and people support their economy – a place where Vernon is known for “Open for Business”
  • Jobs – supporting and facilitating employment opportunities that can help individuals and families become sustainable and save for their future
  • Safe, secure and affordable – working towards an environment where our neighbourhoods are safe and secure and people can afford to live and reside in our community.

How would I represent you?  


  • Honesty
  • Integrity
  • Transparency
  • Dedication

What do I bring to this position?

I am:

  • Dependable
  • Approachable
  • Open minded
  • Experienced

I will work with you and for you. My promise to you is that I promise to always give you my best in everything I do as your Mayor. I will serve you and represent you well!

I would love to hear from you and would appreciate the opportunity to connect and discuss our wonderful community. Please feel free to contact me at jamieforvernonmayor@gmail.com.

Above all, please remember to vote!

  1. You say:
    •has adequate and easily accessible recreation facilities

    How will you try to made Vernon sidewalks and buildings more accessable for Prople with Disabilities including senior a growing demographic?


    • Good afternoon Don,

      Excellent question. I believe that we must assess all of our venues to ensure that they are assessable to all. Especially people with disabilities and our growing senior demographic. I know people with disabilities and I understand their challenges and concerns. The venues that do not meet the needs and that are not easily assessable should be put on a priority list for improvement. I know this is sometimes easier said than done, but I consider myself a doer and this is important.
