Regional District of Nanaimo board will have someone new at the head of the table, after Tyler Brown was elected as the new chairperson.
Brown, RDN Nanaimo director, ran for the position against incumbent Ian Thorpe, another Nanaimo director, and was selected by secret ballot at the RDN’s ‘inaugural’ 2020-21 meeting today, Nov. 10.
“It is a privilege and an honour to be elected by my colleagues to serve the RDN board in governing the affairs of the district,” said Brown in a press release. “Decisions regarding public policies, bylaws and key services throughout the region will continue to be sensitive to the priorities and needs of our residents.”

Brown and Craig will hold their board positions until at least the inaugural meeting in fall 2021.
