Penticton Mayor and Councillor sworn in

Two new elected officials have been sworn into office for the remainder of the 2011-2014 term of Penticton Council.

Penticton Mayor Garry Litke completed the oath of office in a small ceremony at the Pan Pacific in Vancouver this evening. Coun. Katie Robinson also completed the oath of office to join her Council colleagues.

“We are eager to immediately begin highlighting the priorities of our community, including conversations on the progress of the Penticton Regional Hospital Patient Care Tower,” said Mayor Litke.

The ceremony was performed in Vancouver to ensure the City of Penticton was fully represented at the Union of B.C. Municipalities' annual convention.
