Rob Gay has been appointed the new chair of the regional district board.

The 15 directors were sworn in for a three-year term at the Regional District of East Kootenay’s first board meeting since the November 19 election.

There are five faces at the board table that weren’t there last month: Cranbrook’s Wayne Stetski and Bob Whetham, Kimberley’s Ron McRae, Fernie’s Mary Giuliano and Sparwood’s Lois Halko.

All but McRae are serving their first term on the board; McRae was a director from 2002 to 2005.

Lois Halko said, “I’m very pleased to be representing the district of Sparwood at this board. I thank you all for your welcome as a new director and I’m very much looking forward to working with staff and all of the board in the coming three years.”
