Letter: Is the Sooke Director of Corporate Services staying or going? Sooke resident calls for leadership — 21 Comments

  1. This should be interesting…

    It seems to fly in the face of the impression given that Gabryel was a contract hire for a transitional period after which he would have to compete for the full-time position.

  3. I am wondering if the position’s title obfuscation and the “temporary” status were not simply tactics used to divert the Sooke public from somehow linking the firing of Bonnie Sprinkling with the hiring of Ms. Sullivan’s colleague.

  4. My comment is ‘no comment’ as I’m really tiring of the antics of Municipal Hall.

    • Painted rock that you ae not legally allowed to take from the beach or river as it disrupts the eco system.
      What’s worse is the people selling these at markets. Your making a profit off things that are taken illegally.

  5. I guess the better question is whether or not Ms Sullivan and Mr Joseph are doing a good job for the taxpayer, in spite of the fact they were hired from outside the kingdom of Sooke.
    People wonder why civil servants tend to be a complacent lot, when in most cases if they don’t quit or shoot someone, they know they have a job for life. I think change is a good thing. Bring it.

  6. Mark Jarvis – that is not the question as it is about transparency and openness, fairness and not nepotism…neither have had these high positions before and are at the top end of the pay range for it; TS has shown her inexperience with her lack of media relations….GS has had 5 jobs in the last five years to my understanding…

    • Maybe voters will share your opinions if you run in the next election. In the meantime, you can’t please all the people all the time.

  7. Don’t be so hard on the bureaucracy. I mean, come on, geez, Sooke is in desperate need to find something to pay for with the swollen and disproportionate tax rates.

  8. Mark J, would you agree it is about transparency not about the quality of work that they can provide? Not sure whether i will run again, but we both agree, i am sure, that you and I are allowed to opinions regardless of whether either of us is running at the election? This is about potentially alot of money that could be getting blown out of the window (likely not but no one has a clue one way or the other) so the more opinions the better (contrary ones too are even more important)…

  9. What does a Director of Corporate Services do exactly ?
    Why all of a sudden do we need one ? Sounds like a lot of money for a title that we know nothing about and have done without up until the new COA appeared in 2016

  10. How about both the CAO and her hand picked helper both step aside and let some real qualified professionals do the jobs properly. And let’s send Reay and Kasper packing too!

  11. The elected council turned over the operation of the District to two people who have no experience running a municipality. Though it’s tempting to admire the chutzpah of those two people, the Trump management style and the hefty training wages really take the shine off it. My head is spinning trying to figure out which Emperors are really wearing their new clothes and which is … shhhhh don’t say it …..
