Frenkel joins NCLGA as director at large

Recently-elected Vanderhoof councillor Brian Frenkel has accepted a directors position with the North Central Local Government Association.

Recently-elected Vanderhoof councillor Brian Frenkel has accepted a directors position with the North Central Local Government Association.

Frenkel was offered the position after previous director Lance Hamblin was not re-elected in his region,

When a director is not re-elected in their region, the NCLGA’s protocol is to ask past directors if they will fill the position until the next elections are held at the NCLGA AGM in May 2012 in 100 Mile House.

“I was a director at large for 2007 and 2008 and so I was phoned on Monday morning and after consulting with the mayor and the administration at the district … I accepted,” said Frenkel.

He added that his position with the NCLGA will “without a doubt’” bring benefits locally.

“I can bring ideas from Vanderhoof and the north and bring issues we are facing to the table and it will give us another avenue to get those ideas to the provincial or the federal government,” said Frenkel.

“In addition to what we are already doing in Vanderhoof, it just gives you another voice on a provincial committee,” he added.

NCLGA meetings are held every couple of months and the next one will be on December 9 and 10 in Prince George.

“Right now the big thing for us to do is to take any of the issues from the north to government and get them prepared for our annual convention in May,” said Frenkel.

He added that he will seek election on the NCLGA board when the election comes about in May.
