Pittsboro, NC - Bud Marchant, Bill Milholen and Ned Kelly served as the Nominating Committee for the Chatham EDC Board of Directors. There were 13 applicants for the EDC Board of Directors, with 8 positions available. All new applicants were interviewed by the Nominating Committee.

The Nominating Committee recommends reappointment of the following four members:

  • Al Devine
  • Jeffrey Starkweather
  • Dan Sundberg
  • Drew Weniger

The Nominating Committee felt that 6 nominees were extraordinary and recommended the following new members:

  • Rachel Burton
  • Chris Ehrenfeld
  • Doug Emmons
  • Bob Enders
  • Pat Richardson
  • Tom Roberts

As CEO of Chatham Hospital, Bob Enders could perhaps serve as an Ex-Officio member. This recommended slate enhances diversity of the Board in several respects with two of the six under 40 years of age, another under 50 and two more in their 50s. There are also two women nominees, one of whom is African American.

The Nominating Committee also recommends the following slate of officers for 2013-2014:

Co-chairs – Larry Hicks and Keith Hurand

Treasurer – Mike Donoghue

Secretary – held open for new member


Editor's note: Six new members were accepted by the Chatham Board of Commissioners - 4 yes to 1 no. Sally Kost cast the no vote.
