Comox Valley Regional District directors have re-elected Bruce Jolliffe as chair of the board and Bob Wells as vice-chair. Jolliffe is the director for Area A (Baynes Sound – Denman/Hornby Islands) and Wells is a Courtenay director. Both were acclaimed to the positions.

“I’m honoured to accept the role of chair again,” said Jolliffe, who enters his  third term as board chair. “I feel our board is working very well. We do have quite vigorous debate, and I am hoping that you (directors) feel that in two years of chairing, you’ve been given the opportunity to get your views across.”

Having reached the mid-point of its mandate, Jolliffe said the board has pulled together a number of strategic initiatives. He also noted emerging issues such as water, sewer and flood mitigation. The district is also in the process of finding a replacement for CAO Deb Oakman.

Jolliffe hopes to continue building on the working relationships established with local leaders.

“I think we’ve made a really good start. I see our board continue to deliver results. We’re getting there.”
