KAMLOOPS - The new chair and vice-chair of the Thompson Nicola Regional District board of directors have been selected.

Ken Gillis from Electoral Area "L" Grasslands is the district chair. Bill Kershaw from Electoral Area "O" Lower North Thompson will be the vice-chair.

Gillis has lived in Kamloops, Rivers Inlet and Pritchard where he raised beef cattle, the regional district says on its website. He spent a few years in the trucking industry then earned a law degree and practised in Kamloops and Chase. He then owned a marina on the central coast until he sold it in 2005 and returned to Pritchard. He drove truck for another five years before retiring from the road in 2010.
