Silverton's Leah Main has joined the Federation of Canadian Municipalities board.

A local politician has been elected to the BC caucus of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities’ board of directors.

Leah Main, a Silverton councillor and a director on the Regional District of Central Kootenay Board, was elected at the federation’s annual convention in Edmonton on Sunday. Main is one of five representatives from BC on the board.

“I will do my very best to represent our needs and values on the broader stage,” says Main. “I am excited to have been elected and immensely appreciative of the support I received from my RDCK colleagues.”

In her speech to the FCM delegates, Main said she “believes in partnerships between the three orders of government, and in the ability of local governments to both deliver services where they are needed, and to take the lead toward bringing new issues to public attention.”

“I know how important it is for us to work together to accomplish what we cannot do each on our own,” Main added.

“We are very pleased to once again to have one of our directors sitting on the BC caucus,” said RDCK chair Karen Hamling.

Main follows in the footsteps of other RDCK directors including Nelson’s John Dooley and rural Salmo’s Hans Cunningham who have represented the district on the federation’s board.
