Sooke Mayor Maja Tait opened Monday’s Regular Council Meeting with an announcement.
“Teresa Sullivan is no longer with the District of Sooke,” she said. Questions of the CAO are normally to go to the current acting CAO Brent Blackhall, but seeing as he is on vacation, in his stead will be Corporate Officer Carolyn Mushata.
“Nothing further can be said,” concluded Tait definitively.
Sooke has gone through six CAOs since incorporating in 1999. The list includes David Gawley (interim) 1999, Tom Day (2000-2003), Peter Jmaeff (2003-06), Evan Parliament (2006-12), Gord Howie (2012-15), and the latest, Teresa Sullivan (Dec 2015-Feb 2018).
It looks like the District is once again in the market to hire another CAO.
