The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) board of directors has elected Bruce Jolliffe as its chair. Ken Grant was elected as vice-chair. They will serve in these positions for the next year.
This will be the second term as chair for Jolliffe, who was elected at the inaugural board meeting today. The chair, along with the other nine directors, oversees the activities and services that the regional district delivers to its nearly 64,000 residents.
The CVRD board elects its chair and vice-chair position each year. Municipal mayors and councillors appoint directors from their areas to sit on the CVRD board, and the elected representatives from the electoral areas make up the other CVRD board members. Jolliffe represents Baynes Sound-Denman/Hornby Islands (Area ‘A’) as director, and Ken Grant is a councillor from the Town of Comox.
The Comox Valley Regional District is a federation of three electoral areas and three municipalities providing sustainable services for residents and visitors to the area. The members of the regional district work collaboratively on services for the benefit of the diverse urban and rural areas of the Comox Valley.
