Susan Woods announces her candidacy for Oak Bay Council

Susan Woods (business owner, journalist and heritage advocate) is seeking a seat on Oak Bay Council in the November election.

Susan is motivated by a strong affinity with the social, heritage and cultural landscape of Oak Bay, and is endorsed by Martin Segger, retired UVic professor and former city councillor.

Her passion for heritage led Susan to develop and host ‘Remember When’ on CFAX Radio for eight years. ‘Remember When’ was an award-winning program that chronicled the region’s rich past and was often focussed on Oak Bay’s early families, architectural heritage, and historical events.

Throughout her television and radio news career, Susan covered provincial and municipal politics. She understands how government works and the impact that local decisions have on our economy, neighbourhoods, and quality of life.

Susan owns and publishes the Moss Rock Review magazine, and is a Communications and Marketing Consultant. She has been recognized with the Hallmark Society’s Heritage Communications Award, and the YWCA Victoria Woman of Distinction Award.

Susan lives on the Oak Bay border with her husband Greg Evans, who is an author and historian.
