A ministerial order signed September 1 has reappointed nine members of the Agricultural Land Commission whose terms expired the week of the October 24 election.
Honey Forbes of Duncan was reappointed for a one-year term ending October 23, 2021.
Commissioners Andrew Adams, Ian Knudsen, Richard Mumford, Ione Smith and Gerry Zimmerman were appointed for two-year terms ending in October 2022. Three-year appointments were given to Janice Tapp, Susan Gimse and Jerry Thibeault, whose terms end in October 2023.
The commission has 14 members, including chair Jennifer Dyson.
While news of the appointments began circulating in early September, the listings of public sector boards and their members did not reflect the changes till their effective dates.
The appointments were made prior to the election call on September 21, allowing the commission’s work to continue uninterrupted during the interregnum. However, the ongoing election period has limited government communications to matters of health and public safety, as well as statutory requirements.
