Chilliwack school board chairs stay the same

McManus and Krahn remain at helm of trustee table for 2018

No ballots had to be cast in this year’s school board elections, which took place Tuesday night.

The board elections are held annually in December to name board chair, vice chair, and special representatives and their alternates.

Current chair Paul McManus was nominated by Walt Krahn, and no other nominations were made. Current vice chair Krahn was nominated by Bob Patterson, and similarly no other nominations were made.

Silvia Dyck was nominated to be the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association provincial representative, with Heather Maahs as the alternate. Dan Coulter was nominated to be the B.C. School Trustees’ Association provincial council representative, with Patterson as alternate.

The special election meeting was followed by a regular board meeting, the last of the 2017 calendar year.
