Bailey replaces longtime public chair Borden

Local public school board trustee Mark Bailey is taking over as chair of the board.
Bailey, a trustee representing Wards 1 and 5 in Guelph, was elected chair of the Upper Grand District School Board at a meeting of the board Tuesday.
He took over from Orangeville trustee Bob Borden, who had earlier indicated that he would not seek a ninth term as board chair, a news release said.
Trustee Marty Fairbairn, who represents Guelph’s Ward 6 and Puslinch Township, was elected board vice-chair for the next year. It is Fairbairn’s second term as vice-chair, having previously held the role in 2006.
Bailey was first elected to the board in 2006. He has chaired the board’s program committee and has held several positions at the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association, including his current position as second vice-president.
Trustees were also elected to serve as chairs and vice-chairs of the board’s two standing committees, including:
• Jennifer Waterston, of Guelph’s Ward 2, 3 and 4, was acclaimed as chair of the business operations committee.
• Kathryn Cooper, representing the Township of Guelph/Eramosa, Township of East Garafraxa and Town of Erin, was elected chair of the program committee.
• Lynn Topping, representing the townships of Amaranth, East Luther/Grand Valley, Melancthon, and Mulmur, and towns of Mono and Shelburn, was acclaimed as vice-chair of the program committee.
• Bruce Schieck, of the townships of Wellington North and Mapleton, and the Town of Minto, was acclaimed as vice-chair of the business operations committee.
