Karen Goodings has once again been elected to chair the Peace River Regional District board.

Directors voted on the chair, at Friday afternoon’s Regional District meeting in Fort St. John.

The incumbent was up against Director Wayne Hiebert of Electoral Area ‘D’. Before the voting began, Hiebert said if he were to chair the board, he would focus heavily on both the agriculture and the oil and gas industry.

Goodings said she would build important provincial relationships, which would bring results to the Peace Region.

In the end, Goodings won, and will chair the board in 2010.

Goodings has been the chair of the PRRD and the Peace River Regional District since 1998.
