Rumour mill

Rumour mill

I was very flattered to hear that the ‘rumour mill` believes I am qualified to manage the new five-star hotel The Prestige.  Even though I have a right to earn a living, I have not applied nor been offered a position at the new Prestige Hotel, nor do I own any shares in it.  I would never jeopardize my integrity nor any contracts or agreements that the District of Sooke has other companies.

Sooke needs to welcome the new hotel manager of Prestige, Mr. Ben Leversedge and his wife and two children. Mr. Leversedge has worked for Prestige for 10 years in management in the Salmon Arm and the Rossland Hotels. He and his wife have now purchased a home in Sooke and Mr. Leversedge has even volunteered to be a member of the Sooke Regional Tourism Association.

I have decided to not seek re-election in November but I am very excited and look forward to completing the next eight months of my term as your mayor as there are many great opportunities coming to Sooke in the final months of my term.

Finally, I am looking forward to any new career opportunities that will come my way in 2012.

Mayor Janet Evans
