Teresa Sullivan

Witnesses sought in alleged CAO harassment

On Aug. 10, a small group gathered outside residence yelling insults and obscenities at her.

Sooke RCMP want to speak with any witnesses to a harassment incident outside the home of District of Sooke chief administrative officer Teresa Sullivan earlier this year.

On Aug. 10, a small group gathered outside Sullivan’s residence yelling insults and obscenities at her. Sullivan was home at the time.

So far, police have been unable to identify any suspects and the investigation has come to a standstill, said RCMP Staff Sgt. Jeff McArthur.

“We’d certainly be interested if any witness came out of the woodwork,” he said.

Police look at any criminal complaints filed by public officials seriously, McArthur added.

At the time, Sullivan was taken aback by the incident.

“This invasion of the personal privacy of my home left me feeling threatened in a community that has been very welcoming. I do not feel this small group of individuals is reflective of the community at large,” Sullivan said in a written statement to the Sooke News Mirror.

Sullivan was hired last December as CAO with unanimous approval from council.

While Sullivan’s short tenure has been controversial at times, she continues to have support from council, said Mayor Maja Tait.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 250-642-5241 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
