After 10 years on Salmon Arm Council, Coun. Ken Jamieson has announced he will not seek re-election in the fall.

“I have spent a lot of time this summer with my family – especially my grandkids – and that helped make the decision for me. So much has happened in Salmon Arm over the past decade and for me personally. Pam and I have our eighth grandchild coming in January and we want to spend as much time as possible travelling and being with the people we love.”

He said he is unable to put in the necessary time and thought required to conduct his city council duties when his heart is elsewhere.

Jamieson added he is not ruling out a run for a council seat in 2022.
