“I’ve enjoyed occupying the chair for the first year ad fully expect to enjoy occupying the chair for the coming year,” Chair Ken Gillis said, upon re-election.

“Thank you very much.”

Gillis, who is director of area L (Grasslands), became chair last year after former Cache Creek mayor John Ranta failed his re-election bid in the municipal election. Ranta had been mayor since 1990, prior to his defeat in October 2018. Area O (Power North Thompson) director Bill Kershaw is vice-chair for another year.
