Last month Central Saanich Mayor Alastair Bryson was appointed as chairman of the Capital Regional District and he says he's looking forward to working with the CRD more in-depth.

"I'm really looking forward to working with this group of directors," said Bryson. "I've enjoyed my first year working with them and it's a really interesting interface at the CRD level."

Bryson said he values the importance of the regional district coming together to consider issues like deer overpopulation and resident Canada geese and that the input from all communities on issues like those is essential.

"As a board member or as chairman you're there to represent your council, of course, but you're also there to consider things on a deeper level as to how they will affect the region as a whole."

Bryson was appointed to the role in late December after he won a vote against Saanich Coun. Judy Brownoff and Metchosin Mayor John Ranns.

Langford Coun. Denise Blackwell, who has previously held the chairperson position, was appointed as vice-chair after beating out Graham Hill, mayor of View Royal.
