If you’ve got political ambition, now might be the time to jump in.
Nomination packages for this fall’s civic election are available at local municipal halls if you’re planning to run for council or in the Juan de Fuca Electoral Area.
For those seeking a seat on the board of education, packages are available at the Sooke School District office, 3143 Jacklin Rd. in Langford.
