The RDEK’s Electoral Area F Director Wendy Booth, based in Fairmont Hot Spring in the Columbia Valley, has been elected as the Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM) President.

“On behalf of the RDEK, I want to congratulate Wendy. She works tirelessly and is fully committed to everything she takes on. Here in the East Kootenay, we are lucky to have such a passionate voice representing us on a Provincial level,” says RDEK Board Chair Rob Gay. “On a broader scale, British Columbians will benefit from Wendy’s leadership as she continues to advocate for policies and programming that benefit us all.”

This will be Booth’s fifth year on the UBCM Executive. Last year, she served as First Vice President and has also been a Second Vice President and Director at Large. In addition, the RDEK has two other Directors on the UBCM Executive.  Invermere Mayor Gerry Taft has been re-elected as a Director at Large and Gay is serving as the Association of Kootenay Boundary Local Governments (AKBLG) representative on the Executive.

The Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) was formed to provide a common voice for local government and this role is as important today as it was 100 years ago.
