Chair - Celeste Zimmer
Celeste greatly enjoys Central Saanich living with so many nearby farms with fresh produce available, her short walk to access the beach and the abundant trail system the region has to offer. She has a strong passion for the health and environmental sector and has been working in the field of community development for the past 12 years. Outside of work she enjoys explorative pursuits with friends, family, and her two dogs, rock climbing, biking, gardening, sailing, scuba diving and being on the water via any means necessary!
Member at Large - Michele Bond
Michele, her husband David and two daughters Kristen and Kyrie moved to Central Saanich 28 years ago. They live on a small horse farm in the Martindale Valley. Along with the horses, they have a few chickens and ducks and always an Airedale. The daughters have moved out, but are not too far and frequently visit the farm with their daughters. Michele can be found most mornings walking her latest edition Airedale Sailor at Island View Beach.
Secretary - Bruce Elliot
Bruce lived on a small horse farm on Lockside Drive just a short distance south of Martindale Road for most of the 60’s before moving to Sidney. Bruce attended Keating Elementary for grades 1 to 6 and is a Parkland Grad. After completing his further education at Camoson moved to Alberta for employment and returned to live in Brentwood Bay with his lovely wife Judy after retiring in 2012. Bruce can be found riding his bike through our local area several times a week. He says that he did not actually retire but changed jobs from Accounting to Bike Riding.

Member at Large - Jeri Covay
Jeri and her husband Norbert moved to the Tanner Ridge area of Central Saanich at the beginning of 2004 because Norbert had recently moved his business to the Keating Industrial Area. Jeri's interest in local and environmental issues goes back to the 1970s, when she served on an Advisory Planning Commission in Shawnigan Lake. She has studied regional planning at Laval University, worked in a regional district in Quebec and spent many years working for the Government of British Columbia, mostly the Ministry of Municipal Affairs in its various incarnations. In that capacity, she liaised with citizens' groups and local governments. Now retired, she treasures the feeling of community, the sweeping views and the agricultural bounty of Central Saanich.
