RDEK Vice Chair Wendy Booth and Chair Rob Gay.

Regional district names 2014 chair and vice-chair

Rob Gay has been re-elected as Chair of the Regional District of East Kootenay board of directors for the coming year

Rob Gay has been re-elected as Chair of the Regional District of East Kootenay board of directors for the coming year.

It will be the Area C Director’s fourth year in the role. He took over from former Cranbrook mayor Scott Manjak after the November 2011 municipal elections.

On Friday, Dec. 6, Area A director Mike Sosnowski put Gay’s name forward for the position. No other nominations were made and Gay was unanimously elected.

“I’m honoured to be given this position again and I will do my best to support the regional district,” he said.

Meanwhile, Area F Director Wendy Booth was unanimously elected as Vice-Chair for the second year running. Booth was first elected to the role last December, taking over from Invermere mayor Gerry Taft.

“I’ve enjoyed being the Vice-Chair for the past year and I think Chair Gay and I work well together,” she said.
