Two North Thompson representatives have been chosen for the top jobs at the Thompson-Nicola Regional District.
On Thursday, Dec. 12, the TNRD board of directors elected Barriere Mayor Bill Humphreys as its new chair. The election took place during the board’s inaugural meeting on in Kamloops.
Humphreys replaces outgoing chair Randy Murray, who had held that position since 2011.
“There is a lot of strength on the board and I’m looking forward to continuing to work to harness that power,” said Humphreys. “We want to keep a sense of continuity in our actions as we move forward.”
The board also elected Electoral Area “B” (Thompson Headwaters) director Willow MacDonald as vice-chair.
MacDonald replaces Ashcroft director Andy Anderson, who had served as vice-chair since 2011.
“I appreciate the confidence the board has in me, and I’m looking forward to continuing to bring the electoral areas and the municipalities together at the TNRD level,” said MacDonald, who represents the Blue River-Avola area.
