Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier

At the Mem­phrem­a­gog MRC CLD’s last board meet­ing, Ma­gog mayor Vicki May Hamm was elected pres­i­dent and Ayer’s Cliff mayor Alec van Zuiden was elected the vice-pres­i­dent.

“I’m happy to be the pres­i­dent of the CLD fol­low­ing the de­par­ture of Jac­ques Mar­coux, who did ex­cel­lent work,” said Ms. May Hamm. “We have newly elected of­fi­cials on the CLD board which demon­strates a real en­thu­si­asm to be­come in­volved in the or­ga­ni­za­tion. I can also count on the sup­port of the new vice-pres­i­dent, Mr. van Zuiden, to as­sist me. I am there­fore con­fi­dent that all the el­e­ments are in place so that dif­fer­ent eco­nomic part­ners can work to­gether to in­no­vate and de­velop the econ­omy of our re­gion and I plan to con­tinue to work to­wards this.”

The board of the CLD is made up of thir­teen ad­min­is­tra­tors; seven of those are mu­nic­i­pal rep­re­sen­ta­tives and six come from the com­mu­nity. Be­sides the pres­i­dent and vice-pres­i­dent, also sit­ting on the board are: Jean-Pierre Adam, Or­ford Town­ship mayor; Francine Caron-Mark­well, Stanstead Town­ship mayor; Jac­ques De­mers, SteCather­ine de Hat­ley mayor; Philippe Du­til, Stanstead mayor; Yvon Laramee, Eastman mayor; Marie Denise Morency, com­mu­nity; Daniel Guil­lot, ed­u­ca­tion; Lu­cie Gin­gras, tourism; Sylvie Moreau, health and so­cial ser­vices; Michel Gagné, in­dus­try. The seat rep­re­sent­ing the busi­ness com­mu­nity is va­cant.
