Commissioner Martin Sorensen has been officially anointed as the new chair of the Taber Municipal Police Commission.
Nominated at the commission’s Jan. 15 meeting, Sorensen was elected unanimously by his fellow commission members. Sorensen takes on the role with the recent departure of long-serving chair Ken Holst.
“I’ll do my best,” said Sorensen.
Sorensen joined the commission in April 2019 for a two-year term that expires on Dec. 31, 2020. Sorensen has a BA in Commerce from the University of Alberta, and has worked at Ar-Tech Coating since 1989.
Commissioner Wanda Osburne-Campbell was subsequently elected as vice-chair of the seven-member TMPC. At the same meeting, new commissioners Daniel Remfert and Terry Zucht were officially sworn in by Mayor Andrew Prokop.
