The newly elected Chair is the first female mayor of Sand City, and its first-ever mayor and now MST Chair with indigenous heritage.

“Public transportation plays a critical role in our community and region – it connects residents to work, education, medical appointments, shopping, and recreation in an affordable and environmentally friendly way. We will continue the good work to provide access to safe, dependable transit to all community members,” said Carbone.

Chair Carbone and Vice-Chair Worthy will serve in their positions until July 2026.
