New SchoolBoard Vice-Chair

Gary Mailman was elected the Vice-Chair of the South Shore Regional School Board at the Board's monthly meeting last night. He replaces Karen Kinley who resigned her position effective August 31st to take a job in Halifax with the provincial government's legislative council office. Four names were put forward but two members declined forcing a secret ballot vote. Mailman says he's humbled and will take the challenge to help the Board move forward. A by-election to fill the seat vacated by Kinley will be held on Saturday, November 21st
