A new chairperson for the Vancouver Board of Education (VBE) was elected at tonight’s public meeting of the Board. 

Trustee Fraser Ballantyne was elected Chairperson for the term of June 24, 2015 to December 7, 2015. He was first elected as a Trustee 2011, and re-elected in November 2014.

Former Chairperson Christopher Richardson resigned from his position as Chairperson last week at the June 15 public Board meeting. He continues to serve on the Board as a trustee. Vice Chairperson Janet Fraser subsequently stepped in as interim Chairperson until tonight’s election.

The VBE welcomes Mr. Ballantyne into his new role. The Board will hold its next annual election for the Chairperson at its annual meeting in December 2015.
