RD Chairs' after 1st year - 2014-18 Term

Regional District Boards' each year, after December 1st, hold elections to determine their Chair/Vice-Chair for the subsequent year.  The process sees a CAO (Chief Administrative Officer) or other corporate officer run the election process.  Prior to the election - a Director or Directors' usually lobby each other to see if they have enough support to get elected either as Chair or Vice-Chair

Most of the Regional District Boards have already held their elections for Chair/Vice-Chair for 2016

So far - only the Capital, Strathcona and Peace River Regional District Boards' have decided to change their Chair after one year of elected office.  In the Capital Regional District - the Board there decided to elect Esquimalt Mayor Barb Desjardins over Oak Bay Mayor Nils Jensen - read more here while in the Strathcona Regional District - the Board there decided to change its' Chair from SRD Area C Director Jim Abram to Sayward Mayor John MacDonald - read more here, finally in the Peace River Regional District - the new Chair there is Tumbler Ridge Mayor Don McPherson - read more here

Other Regional District Boards' retaining their Chairs' for 2016 include Cariboo, Fraser Valley, Thompson Nicola and Central Okanagan Regional Districts' (Al Richmond, Sharon Gaetz, John Ranta and Gail Given)

Later today - Fraser Fort George Board Chair Art Kaehn finds out if he gets to keep his job for another year (I'm betting that he will)
