Mayor Candidate: Jayson McCarthy running for mayor

District of Lake Country: McCarthy, Jayson - Running for mayor

A two term councillor from 1999 until 2005, Jayson McCarthy was born and raised in Lake Country and has deep roots in the community with three generations of his family having lived in the area for over 100 years.

McCarthy is a realtor with Royal LePage and since stepping away from the council table has served on several committees including the Parks and Recreation commission.

McCarthy’s four children went through the school system in Lake Country with two children grown and his youngest kids still in school, at a high level soccer academy in Kelowna.

It’s McCarthy’s third time running for Lake Country mayor as he ran after incorporation as well as in the last civic election.

“I was happy to step away (from council) nine years ago and turn the decision-making over to other people,” he said. “I don’t believe you should have a job for life in local government. You do your time, contribute to the community and then let other people come forward. I think very strongly that it is time for a change.”
