Regional board holds inaugural meeting

Elections for board chair and vice-chair will be held at the start of the meeting

The new Strathcona Regional District directors will take part in their first board meeting tomorrow.

Elections for board chair and vice-chair will be held at the start of the meeting and the new board chair will then take over the meeting.

Quadra Island director Jim Abram is the current board chair. He was elected by regional district directors to that position last December and ran against former councillor Claire Moglove.

The 2015 edition of the Strathcona Regional District board will include Campbell River councillors Ron Kerr and Larry Samson, as well as newly elected councillors Michele Babchuk and Charlie Cornfield, and Mayor Andy Adams.

Also returning to the board are all four electoral directors – Abram, Brenda Leigh (Area D), Noba Anderson (Area B-Cortes Island), and Gerald Whalley (Area A) – as well as Tahsis Mayor Jude Schooner and Sayward Mayor John MacDonald.
