Sooke Mayor Maja Tait is the new second vice-president of the Union of B.C. Municipalities.
She won the position by acclamation at the UBCM convention in Vancouver on Wednesday.
Last year, Tait was the UBCM’s third-vice-president.
“These are important roles,” Tait told the Sooke News Mirror in an interview earlier this year. “It gives us a voice at the table and is a good learning and educational experience.”
The UBCM convention brings together mayors, councillors and regional district officials, as well as federal and provincial politicians and bureaucrats to explore issues and discuss problems. The UBCM also lobbies and advocates for municipalities on the provincial and national stage.
