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.

The final tally of election results was tabulated at the BRC General Membership Meeting on December 7, 2013, in Pocatello, Idaho.
