Three vye for two spots on Saanich board of education

Kerry Alfred Steinemann, Helen Parker and current Saanich Coun. Wayne Hunter are seeking election

For most voters in Saanich, ballots during the Nov. 19 municipal election will include the names of 15 Greater Victoria board of education trustee candidates. Residents in the north end of the municipality – within the catchment areas for Cordova Bay, Lochside and Prospect Lake elementary schools or Claremont secondary school – will instead have to decide between three candidates vying for two positions representing Saanich on the Saanich School District board of education.

Kerry Alfred Steinemann, Helen Parker and current Saanich Coun. Wayne Hunter want to represent the electoral area that stretches north from Royal Oak.

The Saanich School District board of education is comprised also of two trustee representatives from the district of Central Saanich, two from the district of North Saanich and one from the town of Sidney.

Elected by acclamation are Nick Claxton and Timothy Dunford in Central Saanich, as well as Jane Husband in Sidney. As in Saanich, there’s a three-person race for two trustee positions in North Saanich.
