Main Stages Re-election: RDCK Director on FCM Board

A politician from the Village of Silverton has been re-elected to the British Columbia caucus of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities’ (FCM) Board of Directors.

 

Leah Main, a councillor for the Village of Silverton and a director on the Regional District of Central Kootenay Board, was elected at the FCM Annual Convention in Winnipeg this past weekend.

 

"I believe in the power of partnerships and collaboration; local

government is closest to the people, closest to the problems, and closest to the solutions," said Main in her campaign speech. "Our true strength lies in finding ways to accommodate and reward both the rural and urban contributions to our society."

Main served on three FCM committees in 2015: Environmental Issues and Sustainable Development; Municipal Infrastructure and Transportation Policy; and the Rural Forum.

FCM "represents the interests of local governments on policy and programs that fall within federal jurisdiction." It is comprised of 2,000 members ranging from rural communities to large cities (see https://www.fcm.ca/home.htm for more information).
