Greater Victoria Harbour Authority appoints new members

The Greater Victoria Harbour Authority bowed to public pressure Friday and accepted Coun. Shellie Gudgeon as Victoria’s representative on its board.

The board initially rejected Gudgeon, citing a lack of expertise in the tourism and marine sectors. It also was looking to Victoria to supply more options for board members.

“I’m looking forward to working with the new directors who will be bringing their skills, perspectives and ideas to the board,” board chair Bill Wellburn said in a release.

Other appointments include David Marshall for the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce and Pete Hartman for the Victoria/Esquimalt Harbour Society. View Royal Mayor Graham Hill and Tourism Victoria’s Dave Cowen were re-appointed.
