Fire board chooses new officers

Rex Ianson and Virginia Chang Kiraly were elected by fellow board members as president and vice president, respectively, of the Menlo Park Fire Protection District Board of Directors at its Dec. 17 meeting.

The meeting also saw the swearing-in of Peter Carpenter, Chuck Bernstein and Mr. Ianson as directors. The three ran as a slate during the 2013 election. Incumbent Jack Nelson, whose campaign for re-election proved unsuccessful, also bid farewell to the board during the meeting.

The fire district serves Menlo Park, Atherton, East Palo Alto and nearby unincorporated areas.
