Murdoch, Mayor, Oak Bay


Hard Work Ahead

On November 5th, 2018 I was sworn in as the 28th Mayor (Reeve) of Oak Bay. It's an honour and a privilege to serve Oak Bay in this capacity after seven years on Council. I deeply respect the obligations and responsibilities of the position and I promise to always govern in what I believe to be the best interests of the Community.


I acknowledge the work of the departing Mayor Nils Jensen. I learned from him over the years, and on behalf of the community, express our respect and appreciation for what he has given to Oak Bay.


To remain a great place for our children and grandchildren, we must address the hard issues today. Attention to detail, openness to ideas, respect for our heritage, and a plan for our future is required.

I invite you to join Council and me on a journey of community stewardship.

Kevin Murdoch
