Well out from election campaign, View Royal sees first candidate

View Royal has its first declaration from a political hopeful.

Former Oak Bay chief administrative officer Mark Brennan announced Friday his intention to run for View Royal town council in this fall’s municipal election. He is the first to officially declare he will run for one of the four council seats.

Brennan has lived in View Royal with his wife, Dora, and three children for 11 years and is currently enrolled at the University of Victoria, pursuing a masters degree in public administration.

His background is in law and business administration, and his 25-year career in municipal administration has taken him around the Island and Lower Mainland, with stops in Comox, Fraser-Cheam, Harrison Hot Springs, Port Hardy and View Royal.

None of the incumbent councillors have yet to publicly declare they will run. They include Ron Mattson, who has spent six terms on council starting in 1990; Heidi Rast, who has served since 2008; John Rogers, who has served since 1996 and David Screech, first elected to council in 2002.

Municipal elections take place across B.C. on Nov. 15.
