No changes at the helm of CSRD, school boards

It took only a few minutes for Revelstoke Mayor Dave Raven to reclaim his seat at the head of the table.

It took only a few minutes for Revelstoke Mayor Dave Raven to reclaim his seat at the head of the table at the Dec. 7 Columbia Shuswap Regional District board meeting.

Raven, who was nominated by René Talbot was elected on the first ballot, running against Area E Rural Sicamous director Rhona Martin, who was nominated by Area F director Larry Morgan.

Raven, moved from vice-chair to chair after the death last spring of Area C South Shuswap director Ted Bacigalupo, who had held the position since last December.

“I’ve really enjoyed being the chair over the last portion of the year,” he told directors.

“It was a bit of a difficulty to get into the role due to the circumstances. It was a short period of time and I’d like to continue and do more.”

In her brief remarks to the board, Martin explained she has held the chair position before, and while she thanked Raven for his work 
in the past year, she asked directors to support her.

Once he was confirmed as chair, Raven nominated Martin as vice chair, a suggestion no one challenged.

While elections take place every three years for a seat on the CSRD board, the chair is elected every December for a one-year term.

Everyone also gets to keep their seats at the School District #83 board table.

At the Dec. 11 board meeting, school trustees unanimously re-elected Salmon Arm trustee Bobbi Johnson as chairperson, and Enderby trustee Chris Coers as vice-chair.

Other trustees include Michel Saab, Jenn Wilchuk, Holly Overgaard, Bob Fowler, Laurie Myers, Debbie Evans and Barry Chafe.
