Cable Acclaimed Chair of Prince George School Board
Prince George, B.C. – In what will likely go down as one of the shortest public meetings in recent history, the entire executive was acclaimed at tonight’s inaugural Prince George School Board meeting.
That means Tony Cable will remain chairperson while Tim Bennet, who replaced Trustee Brenda Hooker in September, will stay on as vice-chair.
“I am pleased to carry on another year, we have some real goals and plans we want to implement so I want to be here to shepherd those through,” said Cable, who added there seems to be a real sense of harmony among his colleagues.
“I think so, people are happy with the work people have done and the other issue is one year is a pretty short term, you need a couple of years to start to really seeing some progress with goals and plans.”
Bennett is also pleased to be back. “I only had a couple months to be vice-chair so I’m looking forward to continuing to work with chairperson Cable and the members of the board. We have a lot of work ahead of us with the new strategic plan, the work of the rural advisory committee and of course the facilities report.”
In addition to Cable and Bennett, Sharel Warrington was acclaimed BC School Trustees Association Provincial Councillor along with Bruce Wiebe as BC Public School Employers’ Association Representative.
The meeting was adjourned after just seven minutes.
