Brenda Parkinson, Chair of the Mayor’s Panel on Arts and Beautification and prominent community volunteer organizer, announced September 22 that she is seeking a seat on Sooke Council in the November 15 municipal election.

Parkinson served on the District of Sooke council from 2005 to 2008 and has been an appointed Marriage Commissioner since 2008.

In addition to her position as head of the Mayor’s Panel on Arts and Beautification, Parkinson serves as President of the Sooke Seniors Diamond Jubilee Housing Society and President of the Sooke Caledonia Society.

“Working with the mayor, district staff and the community for the past three years has only reinforced my desire and vigour to once again make a contribution to our community through Sooke Council.

“I have always believed in the potential of our community and, as such, have continued to volunteer on a number of boards and committees and have supported the majority of our local events.

“I look forward to the privilege of working together with our new mayor, council and district staff on behalf of the people of Sooke,” Parkinson said.
