Attached is a letter from the SRD Board Chair, Michele Babchuk - a response to questions raised in the correspondence items ‘Cortes Island Matters’.
The Strathcona Regional District (SRD) Board received several items of correspondence relating to Cortes Island matters at the regular meeting held on February 13, 2019. The Board directed that the matters raised in this correspondence be referred to the SRD Board Chair and Chief Administrative Officer for response and that the response be advertised to the broader Cortes Island community. The 31 items of correspondence received include over 100 questions. The majority of questions can be grouped into four key categories, namely: correspondence to Board Directors, the hall tax referendum, allegations against Electoral Area B Director Noba Anderson and into the Cortes Island 2018 election investigation. Within each category, the questions align under several key themes which are addressed in the letter attached.
