Spring Has Sprung, the Grass is Riz, I Wonder Where the Birdies Is?


Happy Spring everyone!  Hoping for more sunshine, outside time and productivity, both on the home front and at the Council table.

As the Council term winds down this year and the next municipal election in mid-November approaches, I will assess Council’s achievements, look back at the past three years as an Oak Bay Council member and, like so many of my Oak Bay and regional colleagues, I will decide on whether or not to run again for Oak Bay Council.  Whatever this year brings, it has been and still is a great privilege to serve this community as a Council member.

You may also know that the Provincial Government is on the verge of bringing in new legislation to extend local government terms from 3 to 4 years.  I understand that it is very likely that this change will be adopted and for many of us, the decision to run for a four-year term will be a significant factor.  What do you think about changing Council terms from three to four years?  I would be interested in your opinions.

Please post your comments here on this blog and thank you.
