Bench Strength

It appears that Oak Bay voters chose wisely, voting in a new Mayor and Council who have bench strength.  Four incumbents will be taking seats at the Oak Bay Council table (Nils Jensen, John Herbert, Pam Copley and Tara Ney).  I bring two terms of municipal Council and regional experience and we also have two younger members, Kevin Murdock and Michelle Kirby, who will bring new skills and perspectives to the work.  

In addition to what I understand is the Swearing In Ceremony on December 5, 2011 in Oak Bay Council Chambers, there are also two Council orientation sessions scheduled beforehand, one on November 24th in Oak Bay for the new Mayor and Council and one on November 30th in Esquimalt for new Council members from across the region.  

While it will be a busy time leading up to Christmas, I am excited about the challenges ahead and the opportunity to serve my community.  Stay tuned…
