Update on UNSM Board of Directors


As you may know, UNSM President Councillor Claire Detheridge has taken ill, and will be focused on recovery over the next number of months. Our thoughts and prayers are with Claire and her family as she begins recovery. The UNSM Board wishes to thank Vice President Councillor Laurie Murley for stepping up in Claire's absence.

To allow her the necessary time to recover, and following the intent of the UNSM By-Laws that this year's President be from the regional caucus, the Board has appointed Mayor Cecil Clarke to serve as President. This appointment, fully endorsed by CBRM Council, is effective immediately until Claire can resume her duties as President.

Deputy Warden Fraser Patterson, County of Victoria, has been elected by the Rural Caucus to serve as one of its representatives on the Board.

The UNSM Board is appreciative of Mayor Clarke's and Deputy Warden Patterson's willingness to serve.
