About Jamie

 

My name is Jamie Morrow and given the honour, I would be proud to serve you as your Mayor of Vernon. I have grown up in Vernon graduating from Vernon Secondary School. I am also a proud graduate of Okanagan College here in Vernon and spent time as President of the Okanagan College Alumni Association. I consider myself a lifelong learner. I am currently enrolled in a Masters of Business Administration program and continually participate in a number of professional development opportunities.

For the past eight years, I have worked at Okanagan College, specifically in the School of Business as an Events & Program Assistant. One of my main responsibilities is recruiting students to Okanagan College from within and outside of our community. As such, I have the wonderful opportunity to talk about not only Okanagan College, but I also have the pleasure of promoting our wonderful community as a great place to live and study. Another responsibility of my role is to establish collaborative working relationships with local businesses, the Chambers of Commerce, Community Futures and other local stakeholders throughout the Okanagan Valley. This experience has prepared me well for community service.

I truly believe I have the experience, skills and background to be your Mayor. I have over 25 years of business management and leadership experience through my career with a number of diverse businesses including previously owning and operating two businesses in BC. Specifically related to municipal politics, I have previous council experience having served on council in the Kootenays and was proud to contribute to my community through my position on Council.

I believe strong communication skills, both verbal and written, are vital to good leadership and I pride myself in possessing these skills. I have many years of public speaking experience and I have the ability to quickly establish a positive rapport with people I meet.

I would love to hear from you and would appreciate the opportunity to connect and discuss our wonderful community. I sincerely look forward to the opportunity to serve you as your Mayor of Vernon.

    • Thank you for your comments Kris. I have seen may things happen over the past several years. When one is passionate and believes in positive change one must act. I have decided to act by running for Mayor. I believe that our voice has not been listened to and I want to be the voice for our fine citizens. As Mayor, I will listen to and hear the voice of our citizens. I know that I will not be able to please everyone, but everyone deserves the right to be listened to and heard. I look forward to representing Vernon as your Mayor.
