Mayor-elect Reid Hamer-Jackson and incoming Kamloops RCMP superintendent Jeff Pelley are interviewed in Episode 64 of Kamloops Last Week.
Hamer-Jackson (at the 20:15 mark) touches on a wide range of subjects, including the Wednesday morning fire at his business, his potentially divisive marks directed at city managers and council members, his ability to be a team leader and represent the city well in public spaces, his absence from the council meeting on Tuesday, the “fancy words” of outgoing Kamloops Mayor Ken Christian, the apology he is seeking from Coun. Dale Bass, his relationship with ASK Wellness executive director Bob Hughes, election signs he claims were taken down by community service officers during his campaign, parking, housing, transportation, charity golf-tournament exploits, fire department staffing and his son Tyrell’s lacrosse comeback with the Vancouver Warriors.
Pelley (at 9:23) provides background on his rise through the RCMP ranks and talks of goals, which include strategies for dealing with repeat offenders and property crime, among others.
He talks of hopes for a good working relationship with Hamer-Jackson and city council and shares information on his personal life and hobbies, which include baseball and dirt biking.
Showmaster Magic Mike Miltimore (at 4:42) leads the #LastWeekClique team on an incredible journey through Peterson Creek, which magically incorporates our beloved sponsors — Gord’s Appliance and Mattress Centre, Nu Leaf Produce Market and McDonald’s.
