Current Central Saanich councillor Zeb King announced this week he will seek re-election for a fourth term in the November election.

King, who was first elected to council in 2002, said if he’s elected his main focus will be on taxes and municipal finances.

“[Should I be elected for a] fourth term, I am committed to keeping taxes low, reducing municipal debt and increasing savings,” said King in a press release.

“I will support balanced development that respects our long-term community plans while protecting agriculture and food security. And I will continue to work to build positive relationships between council and the First Nations.”

King, who works as a Senior Policy Analyst with the B.C. Ministry of Health, said his reasoning for running again stems from his desire to help people in the community with issues that are important to them.

“It’s because I’ve been able to help people get results,” King said.

“From high profile issues like establishing bus service on the Tsawout reserve and bringing an end to the devastating impact of the composting facility that affected residents in Tanner Ridge, to less prominent files like improving provisions for mail ballots.”

The municipal elections in Central Saanich, North Saanich and Sidney all take place Saturday, Nov. 15.
