Ashcroft Mayor Andy Anderson was elected Vice Chair of the TNRD board of directors at their inaugural meeting in Kamloops on Dec. 7.
Electoral Area “M” Director Randy Murray was elected as the new Chair to replace outgoing Chair Peter Milobar.
“There is a lot of strength on the Board and I’m looking forward to continuing to work to harness that power,” said Murray. “We want to keep a sense of continuity in our actions as we move forward into the future.”
Anderson echoed Murray’s comments.
“I appreciate the confidence the Board has in me in Randy’s absence, and I’m looking forward to continuing to bring the EA’s and the municipalities together at the TNRD level,” he said.
The board is made up of 21 directors from throughout the TNRD. Eleven board members are municipal politicians appointed by their councils and 10 are elected in rural electoral areas specifically to sit at the board table.
