Mary P Brooke is running for one of the four (4) trustee seats of the Belmont Zone on the Sooke School District SD62 Board of Education.
The SD62 board has seven (7) seats. Four trustees are elected by voters in the Belmont Zone (Langford, Colwood, Highlands and Metchosin) and three trustees are elected by voters in the Milne’s Landing Zone (Sooke and Juan de Fuca).
She announced her campaign yesterday in social media. The campaign website is at marypbrooke.ca . Her campaign includes an emphasis on education excellence for learners at all levels, as well as bolstering and developing food security garden production and classroom curriculum.
The election date is Saturday, October 15, 2022.
Stepping aside from local election news coverage:
As Mary P Brooke is the Editor of this Island Social Trends news portal, she will now step aside from doing news-reporting about the local municipal election in the west shore (Colwood, Langford, Metchosin, Highlands, View Royal and Sooke).
Island Social Trends will not be reporting on any school district news until after the October 15, 2022 election.
We apologize if this inconveniences any of our regular readers who for many years have enjoyed our election season reporting and editorial insights.
Depending on the election outcome, we will be sure to provide post-election analysis.
Island Social Trends continues with features & op-eds:
Island Social Trends continues to cover BC and national news of interest to Vancouver Island readers.
Island Social Trends continues to offer socioeconomic news insights, beyond the west shore region. Opinion-editorials welcome. We will continue to publish our Community Events Calendar and Traffic Page, as well as Health bulletins and other general news of importance to the broader community.
From the start, this publication was designed to explore social and economic shifts toward a more sustainable, equitable and diverse society. We will continue to report on sustainability, food security, agriculture, COVID, and other things of concern to the broad readership.
Reporting for 14 years on the west shore:
A series of publications spearheaded and edited by Mary P Brooke morphed along over the years, to ultimately produce Island Social Trends in mid-2020.
The first publication was the quarterly colour glossy MapleLine Magazine (2008-2010), followed by the weekly grayscale print newspaper Sooke Voice News (2011-2013), which evolved into the colour print/PDF newspaper called West Shore Voice News (2014-2020).
