Ladysmith mayor Stone elected CVRD chair

Director Morrison moves to the vice chair position

Aaron Stone will lead the Cowichan Valley Regional District for the coming year as the new chair of the board of directors.

The Ladysmith mayor and municipal appointment to the CVRD board was elected to the role by fellow directors at the CVRD board meeting Wednesday, replacing Area F director Ian Morrison.

“I am excited to lead the Cowichan Valley Regional District as chair of the board and I look forward to building on what director Morrison accomplished in this role during the first year of our term,” noted Stone.

“Having spent my entire life in the Cowichan region, I appreciate both the unique and collective challenges our communities are up against in the face of climate change, evolving economies and shifting demographics. I hope to bring a collaborative, relationship-focused approach to our regional governance, particularly with our First Nations leadership and community members.”

Director Morrison ran unopposed and was elected to the role of vice chair of the board.
