Hartshorne announces bid for North Saanich mayoralty

District of North Saanich: Hartshorne, Dorothy - Mayor Candidate. Dorothy Hartshorne seeks return to North Saanich politics.

Dorothy Hartshorne has entered the race for the mayor's seat in the District of North Saanich.

Former North Saanich municipal politician Dorothy Hartshorne hopes to return to district council in the fall — this time as mayor.

Hartshorne was a North Saanich district councillor from 1999 to 2005 before she and her husband Dan sold their local business and moved to B.C.’s Cariboo Chilcotin region. There, she worked as a constituency assistant to MLA Donna Barnett. She and her husband recently moved back to North Saanich.

She stated in a media release she is seeking the mayor’s chair to provide balanced community leadership and bring a commitment to fair play to the council. Hartshorne was a councillor during the mayoral terms of Ted Daly (2002 to 2008).

Incumbent Mayor Alice Finall has indicated she will be seeking re-election in the Nov. 15 municipal election. Finall has been in the position since 2008.
