Lefebure reelected board chair of the CVRD

Fourth consecutive term equals the most by a director in the last 50 years

Jon Lefebure of Chemainus will serve a fourth consecutive term as Cowichan Valley Regional District board chair and Cowichan Valley Regional Hospital District chair.

The North Cowichan Mayor was returned to the posts during the CVRD’s Nov. 8 meeting.

“I am very pleased to have been reelected board chair and excited about the work ahead of us in the final year of our term,” noted Lefebure.

Area F (Cowichan Lake South/Skutz Falls) Director Ian Morrison was elected to serve as vice chair.

In the coming weeks, Lefebure will create his standing committees and select various committee chairs.

Only one other director in the last 50 years has served as board chair for four consecutive terms. That was Joe Allan from 1994 to ‘97.
