Maja Tait

Sooke mayor back on job April 1

Maja Tait, who took a leave of absence in mid November, gave birth to a son, Ewan, on Nov. 27.

Sooke Mayor Maja Tait will return from maternity leave on April 1.

Tait, who took a leave of absence in mid November, gave birth to a son, Ewan, on Nov. 27. Ewan is her first child.

The mayor hoped to return earlier from her leave of absence, but decided last week to stay with the original April return date.

“I’m looking forward to returning and grateful for the time with my son,” Tait told the News Mirror.

Tait will return to a much different municipal hall, then when she left.

There have been major personnel changes with the hiring of chief administrative officer Teresa Sullivan on Dec. 14 and the departure of three senior managers.

Tait has been kept well informed of the inner workings of the municipality and council since she left, acting mayor Kerrie Reay said at a recent council meeting.

 

This is Tait’s first term as mayor. She served on council previously.
