The Skeena-Queen Charlotte regional district is getting a new administrator. Masset mayor Barry Pages, the chair of the regional district, announced this week that the board has hired John Holland to fill the position. Mr. Holland was the chief administrative officer for the District of Stewart and has many years of local government experience in Nunavut and the Northwest Territories, Mr. Pages said. He has an MBA from York University and a Bachelor of Science degree from UBC. Mr. Holland and his family will be moving to Prince Rupert and he will start his new job at the regional district on July 16. The position became empty in February when the regional district board voted to terminate its previous administrator Janet Beil without cause. Ms Beil had worked for the regional district for 19 years.
