PARRSBORO – The by-the bay community radio station here in Parrsboro has elected a new board after several years of infighting, controversy and court proceedings, electing a mix of past and present board members, with a few newcomers, too.
Incumbents Dora Fuller, Alexander Lich, Son and Sylvia Jewers and Lewis Brown regained their seats Saturday on the Parrsboro Community Radio Society board, while new-nominees Bill Connors, Randy Mosher, Lyle Yorke and Shirley Brown were also successfully elected. Past board member Andrew Wagstaff was nominated and successfully re-elected to the board.
The new board has yet to select its executive positions, like chair and vice-chair, but will have many fences to mend and bridges to build moving forward. Years of infighting between what had become known as “Group A” and “Group B” lead to more than $30,000 in debt, including legal fees paid out during court proceedings between the two.
The new board represents a share from both parties.
