KITIMAT SNATCHES CAO FROM TERRACE

It was announced this afternoon, May 19th at 2:00 pm that Ron Poole will be the new CAO for the District of Kitimat. Poole is the current CAO for the City of Terrace.

“We’re really excited about Mr. Poole as our new manager. We are in the enviable position of right now having an upswing in our economy and I think we needed a manager with the skill set he has to help us move ahead and our community wants to go forward and I think he’s the man to do it. He has 26 years of experience, he’s well respected in Terrace, with the local First Nations and other municipalities around the province,” said Mayor Joanne Monaghan.

Poole will begin working for the District of Kitimat on July 4th, 2011.
What about Weeber?

Does this mean that Peter Weeber is going to be the new CAO in Terrace?
Interesting Trend

First the Fire Chief, now the CAO.....like rats leaving a sinking ship. Both are extremely well-respected and highly competent. I wonder if the Mayor is making the effort to consider the reasons behind the departure of such talent and the role that the questionable skill sets of both himself and his new Council have played.
Congratulations Mr. Poole!
Comment by Margaret McDaniel on 20th May 2011
I am very pleased to hear of the appointment of Mr. Poole to CAO for the District of Kitimat.
The McDaniel family has had the good fortune of several dealings with Mr. Poole. He has always found him to be intelligent, charitable and effective. I also now reside in Kitimat, with my new husband. I welcome the positive change and environment Mr. Poole will bring to the community.
Congratulations Ron and family I am certain you will gain many supporters and enjoy much success in Kitimat.
