Young Penticton woman deserves your vote

Penticton reader asks public to get behind woman's campaign for B.C. Ambassador.

So often the letter to the editor forum is used to gripe or complain or to chastise another letter writer for views that you don’t agree with.

Today I want to tell you about an amazing young lady in Penticton. Camelia Vokey is a candidate for BC Ambassador.

Camelia is a former Miss Penticton princess and has spent endless energy promoting Penticton. She is a talented young lady who teaches dance to young students, works part time and still has time to devote to representing Penticton. I have had the pleasure of knowing Camelia since she was quite young and for the last number of years she has dedicated her time and talent to the Christmas charity gift wrap. She readily shows up to speak to any group that asks and also participated in the International Worker’s Day (May Day) sponsored by the South Okanagan Boundary Labour Council.

I want to encourage the people of Penticton to support Camelia in her candidacy for B.C. Ambassador as I feel we will all be very proud to have someone of her calibre representing the positive aspects of our youth. There is one week left to vote for her as the People’s Choice. Voting ends Friday Aug. 17, 2012. You can vote daily. Let’s get behind her and vote for Camelia Vokey at

Good luck Camelia.
