Grace McGregor, Regional District of Kootenay Boundary representative for Area C/Christina Lake, was once again voted in as board chair for the organization.

The vote took place on Dec. 10 at the regional district (RDKB) board room in Trail. Roly Russell, Area D/Rural Grand Forks representative, was voted in as vice-chair.

“It was our inaugural meeting for the regional district,” said McGregor. “This is really good. I can work very well with Roly, so I’m extremely happy with him being vice-chair. I think that speaks to what we’ve got in the Boundary.”

The appointment as board chair is McGregor’s third and she is very pleased. “I’m very honoured to be chair of the board again. We’ve done some really good things. I also want to congratulate Roly.”

As the inaugural meeting of the year, the new directors were sworn in—including Grand Forks Mayor Frank Konrad, who replaces Councillor Neil Krog as the city’s representative on the RDKB board.
