Regional district directors have voted in a new person to lead their table.
Director Linda Worley — representative for Area B/Lower Columbia-Old Glory — was elected chair by the board of directors for the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) earlier this month.
Worley was first elected to office in 2010.
“I would like to thank the board of directors for electing me chair for the coming year,” Worley said in a news brief. “I will, as always, endeavor to represent the will of the board and respectfully listen and hear the diverse voices around our region. I will continue to advocate for the board and our communities.”
Worley added she looks forward to working with, and learning from, seasoned vice-chair Grace McGregor. McGregor, first elected as director for Area C/Christina Lake in 2005, was elected to the vice role for a fifth consecutive term.
McGregor echoed Worley’s sentiments, saying, “I am grateful to the board for once again placing its faith in me. I will strive for unity and for positive changes to the board.” McGregor also said she anticipates the day when the board can once again meet in person.
Both the board chair and vice-chair serve a one-year term.
Outgoing chair Diane Langman served in the lead role since 2019.
“Overall it has been a wonderful experience where I have had the pleasure to work more closely with other directors throughout our region, learn more about our area, and to truly appreciate the amount of depth and knowledge our staff have at the regional district.”
An RDKB board meeting goes today (Nov. 25) at 1 p.m. via Zoom. The 614-page agenda includes a delegation from Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation and Forest Enhancement Society of BC.
