POCATELLO, ID (December 11, 2013) -- The BlueRibbon Coalition is proud to announce the results of the recent BRC Board of Directors Election, which saw the re-election or election of four candidates to positions on the BRC Board of Directors.

Re-elected to the BRC Board of Directors are Kay Lloyd and John Stewart. The two new candidates elected to the board are Danny Hale and Jack Welch (Jack Welch is a former member of the Board of Directors and a past President).

The BlueRibbon Coalition would like everyone to join them in welcoming these fine new board members. Each of them brings a number of outstanding assets to the recreational access table, and we look forward to working with them as they assume their new positions at the onset of 2014.
