Here's what people say...

"I have had the pleasure of working with Britt for the past 2 years at the Sooke Region Chamber of Commerce. Britt has shown she can bring consensus when there are difference of opinions and emotions are high. I have been impressed with her leadership skills and her passion for the community and the environment.  She attends all council meetings and, in my opinion, the only candidate that is up to date with the current issues at Council.

I will be supporting her with her bid for a council seat this month."

- Janet Evans (former Sooke Mayor)

"I know Britt to be a determined, honest, persistent journalist. Those are all great traits for a councillor. Sooke council badly needs a person with those qualities to ensure that decisions are made after fulsome and informed debate, not merely rubber-stamped. She will bring much-needed new perspectives. GO BRITT!"

- Shannon Moneo

"Britt knows what Sooke needs going forward, she has been a dedicated news reporter, supports the arts and would be a great fit on city council because of her dedication to balancing growth while keep our small community charm."

- Benjamin Kendrick

"Sooke needs Britt's vision of an inclusive, sustainable community and her willingness to work hard to make it happen."

- Margaret Critchlow

"Britt Santowski has my backing, she is hard working and if she says she will do something- she gets it done."

- Andrew Donnelly

"I believe Britt has the ability to take a look at things with an objective eye. She has shown an ethical approach to journalism and has established and run a successful hyper-local news source. A great supporter of local enterprise and local causes, she is well known within the community. She is professional and approaches issues from a place of experience in life and a community member. I am personally grateful to her for being a driving force in allowing my business to grow and be known within the community when I was new to the town of Sooke."

- Pooja Barooah

"Always dedicated to the well being of the community."

- Joe Scheubel

"It is my privilege to write words of support for the candidacy of Britt Santowski for Council. Her passion, caring and interest in all things Sooke is reflected in her daily news reports. She is intelligent, articulate, reliable and has a talent for reading and assessing a view to make an informed decision. Britt would complement and provide a balanced voice to Council decision-making."

- Sande Cummings

"Great asset to the Sooke council and doesn't need to catch up! She has been attending every council meeting for years."

- Lorna Danylchuk

"Britt has my vote..Take the time to read her well thought out platform..She can help steer Sooke in a positive direction..."

- John Boquist

"I am so excited that Britt is running for council! This lady is all for moving Sooke forward as a town and destination but with forethought and vision. Britt knows this community so well, having served us with free news. She has a better knowledge from the outside of how council works, cares for this community, and is approachable and willing to speak up for others - you go Britt!"

- Zoe Baldwin

"I have known Britt Santowski for eight years. She has impressed me with her energy, integrity, outstanding communication skills and genuine concern for the welfare of everyone in Sooke. Britt is a very good listener who is able to distill issues to their essence. She does not waste words in her articles in the Sooke Pocket News. Britt is an innovator who is not afraid of new challenges, such as when she launched the Sooke Pocket News. Britt has a good sense of humour. I miss her cartoons from the days when she was with the Sooke News Mirror. I am happy to endorse and support Britt as a fine candidate for the District of Sooke Council."

- Mark Ziegler

"Britt is organized and unafraid to tackle big tasks... and she is a great supporter and a voice for everybody in Sooke who needs one."

- Marleen Kiral

"It's about time Britt!
You already do more for this community than anyone in this town."

- Shandra Collins

"Britt would be a positive voice for Sooke."

- Sharlene Amerl

"Britt understands the current challenges for Sooke and how to work with the Mayor and Council to make well-informed decisions that benefits everyone in the community."

- Adrienne Wass

"Your vision, honesty and understanding of the challenges small businesses have in Sooke will be a great asset. You have the understanding of the political boundaries as in what areas of our district, CRD or province are responsible for. You have a clear understanding of environmental responsibilities and great ideas on how we can build our core economy in a creative and positive way. Thanks again for your energy and time."

- Gwen Fisher

"Britt is my choice for counselor! She has been actively engaged in the ongoing process of monitoring the District of Sooke council meetings for a number of years. To me this means that she has demonstrated her interest in the affairs of our community: she has the insight needed to be effective on council because she is aware of the decision making process, and she is aware of the history of the decisions made because she has been involved for so long by attending meetings. For all of these reasons and many more Britt has my endorsement for Council."
