Trustee Fulvio Valentinis will remain as the Chair of the WECDSB for another year while Trustee Mary DiMenna will become the new Vice-Chair. Both were acclaimed to their respective positions at Tuesday’s annual organizational meeting.

Elections for the position of Chair and Vice-Chair are held on an annual basis, and Trustees cast their votes for these positions at the Board’s yearly organizational meeting.

Mary DiMenna, who has represented Catholic ratepayers, parents and students in Essex, Kingsville and Leamington since 2003, replaces Trustee Lisa Soulliere as Vice-Chair of the Board. A retired WECDSB elementary teacher who spent 33 years in the classroom, she was Vice-Chair from 2009-17, and has been active on a number of Board committees including the Audit Committee, Special Education Advisory Committee, Discipline Committee and Employee Wellness Committee.

In addition to electing the Chair and Vice Chair, the Board welcomed two new Trustees: Joe Iacono, who replaces Tony Polifroni in Wards 2 & 9, and Jason Lazarus who replaces Fred Alexander in Wards 5 & 8. Both were elected in the recent municipal election. Alexander and Polifroni both chose to not seek re-election.
