The Cowichan Valley Regional District board has re-elected North Cowichan Mayor Jon Lefebure as chairman.

At its Nov. 8 meeting Lefebure was chosen by his fellow directors to serve a fourth consecutive term in the role of board chairman and Cowichan Valley Regional Hospital District chairman.

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

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