FORMER City of Terrace chief administrative officer Ron Poole was awarded the Lieutenant-Governor’s Silver Medal for Excellence in Public Administration at a June 9 ceremony at Government House in Victoria.

The award is sponsored by the Lieutenant Governor and the Institute of Public Administration of Canada and recognizes an individual’s accomplishments in public administration.

Poole has spent 30 years in public administration in the north, working in the northeast before coming to Terrace.

He left Terrace in 2011 for a similar position in Kitimat and left there this June to be the top administrator in Mission, B.C.

During his time in Terrace Poole helped establish the first public administration certificate program at Northwest Community College for First Nations and other local government employees.

Present at the June 9 ceremony were former Terrace city councillor Olga Power, former Terrace planner David Trawin who is now the top civic official in Kamloops and former Terrace fire chief Peter Weeber who is now the chief administrative officer in Mackenzie.

Also present were current Terrace chief administrative officer Heather Avison and current corporate administrator Alisa Thompson.
