"I humbly accept and appreciate the honor," said Chairman Klein. "I thank Vice Chairman Ure for his contributions. At the end of the day, this is a team effort. We are a board that has to get a lot of things accomplished. Our finances, quality, outreach, tax reliance are all heading in the right direction. I'm thankful to have the opportunity to chair the board and continue that momentum. I hope to serve well."
