Special thank you to outgoing Chair Gaetz, who has worked very hard for the region and has helped steer the board through many ups and downs over her many years of service. Also thank you and congratulations to Patricia Ross for her re-election as Vice Chair, and to Mayor Wilfried Vicktor for letting his name stand for election.
