Kettle re-elected RDCK chair

John Kettle was returned unopposed Thursday for a third consecutive one-year term as chair of the Regional District of Central Kootenay.

John Kettle was returned unopposed Thursday for a third consecutive one-year term as chair of the Regional District of Central Kootenay.

The rural Creston director said this year was filled with changes and challenges, including the completion of a corporate review, hiring of a new administrator, switch to a new accounting system, and response to several natural disasters, foremost the Johnsons Landing slide.

“The challenges of 2012 will probably be in a book somewhere,” he said. “I don’t think any regional district’s gone through what we’ve gone through this year … It’s been trying, but we got through it.”

Slocan’s Hillary Elliott was acclaimed to her third term as vice-chair.

The board also adopted a new slogan: Representing Diverse Communities in the Kootenays.
