TORONTO - The Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) chose a new Chair to replace outgoing Maria Rizzo.
Trustees opted for a steady and experienced hand at the helm last night, voting 7-5 in favour of veteran Joe Martino.
He had served as the last Chair of the Metro Separate School Board and the first Chair of its successor Board, the current TCDSB, from 1997 to 1999.
Markus De Domenico, the other contestant, ceded after a second ballot broke the 6-6 tie that resulted from the first vote. His classy attempt at a motion to make the result unanimous was shot down by a grandstanding Rizzo.
Angela Kennedy, another former Chair was elected Vice-Chair.
