MEDIA RELEASE JANUARY 18, 2019 - 2019 CHAIR AND VICE CHAIR APPOINTED

At their January 17, 2019 meeting, Michael Vagnini was reelected Chair of the Greater Sudbury Police Services Board and Frances Caldarelli was elected to assume the post of Vice Chair.

Michael Vagnini accepted the nomination with honour and commented “the continued opportunity to lead the Greater Sudbury Police Services and work along my Board colleagues is a privilege. Over the last few years, our Board has worked collectively in the interest of community safety and wellbeing. We are a cohesive Board, who has maintained fiscal accountability throughout our term. Through my involvement with the Canadian Association of Police Governance as one of the appointments from Ontario, the north has been able to assert a strong voice. Our innovative approach to modernizing our Service is thanks to the committed members of the organization who serve this community with pride and dignity. As the Board is developing its Strategic Plan for the next four years which will lay a solid foundation for policing in Sudbury and GSPS is well positioned. The City of Greater Sudbury Council appointed Member Vagnini to the Board for the term of Council in December 2014. Mr. Vagnini is very active in Ward 2 and throughout the community having been a lifelong resident of our City. During the recent municipal election, he was acclaimed as a member of Council with the support of his constituents.

The Board also endorsed Frances Caldarelli for the position of Vice Chair. She too graciously accepted the appointment and was grateful for the support of her Board colleagues. “Our Board stands together and has developed a strong sense of unity in the last couple of years. I look forward to working with my Board colleagues as we set new strategic priorities and plans.” Member Caldarelli was appointed to the Board by City Council in February 2015. Ms. Caldarelli came to the Board well-equipped with many years as a City Councillor and a strong sense of Board governance. Mrs. Caldarelli also serves on the Ontario Association of Police Services Boards and the Ontario Police Arbitration Commission. She is well regarded for her contributions and dedicated to addressing priorities facing policing.

Chief Paul Pedersen extended warm congratulations to Chair Vagnini and Vice Chair Caldarelli acknowledging the experience they collectively bring to their respective roles.  “In a time of change, it is reassuring to have stability in key roles which will assist in building on the momentum underway on so many fronts. As the stewards of public funds allocated to policing, this entire Board is thanked for their incredibly hard work and I look forward to continue to work together in building our strategic directions in in the coming months”.
