The nomination papers are filed and the signs are up for Kerrie Reay who is seeking re-election in the November 15 municipal election.  Reay is running for her second term as councillor.

The past three years Reay has served on the Finance Committee, Chaired the Community Grant Committee, has been the liaison for the Sooke Protective Services, a Director for CREST, a Trustee on the Vancouver Island Regional Library (VIRL) Board as well as serving on the Victoria Youth & Family Justice committee..

Reay feels she has strived to ensure she is well informed when making decisions on council, because decisions made by council impact the residents of Sooke almost immediately.

She feels this past council has worked hard at getting their fiscal house in order and keeping taxes down.Reay believes she offers a collaborative and goal-focused approach on council that still allows for independent decision making and problem solving in a professional manner.  Speaking with residents and businesses over the summer and fall and indicates that continued financial responsibility and downtown beatification are clearly on a lot of people’s radar, as is the seniors centre and youth recreation. There is also lots of discussion on small business, economic development and the future of Sooke.  Reay believes with the Official Community Plan in place the next council will have an opportunity to set strategic goals for the community for the next five and 10 years, “what will Sooke look like in 10 years’, long term, practical and realistic goals for the growth of Sooke; an action plan.

Kerrie is celebrating 30 years with the BC Corrections Branch and is a recipient of the Governor General of Canada Medal for Exemplary Service in Corrections. She commutes by transit to Victoria, and since September works half time at home in Sooke. She volunteers doing charity fundraising and is a Director on the Sooke Seniors Housing Society.
