Governing Newberg City Council member appointed to replace retiring Larry Anderson
Newberg city counselor Bart Rierson was appointed to replace Larry Anderson on the board of the Chehalem Park and Recreation District at its Jan. 23 meeting.
An active volunteer with CPRD for years, Rierson has served on the budget committee and as project manager for the Ford Family Leadership Class Chehalem Paddle Launch project, which has become the CPRD Chehalem Paddle Launch.
Im so honored to get selected to fill (Andersons) position, Rierson said. Ive done a lot of work with them, like on the paddle launch, and Im so impressed with how much theyve done over the last 20 or 30 years with the current board and (superintendent) Don Clements. Im just excited to be able to do more.
