Penticton’s top cop is taking on a new challenge.

RCMP Insp. Brad Haugli will lead the 2011 United Way campaign.

The officer in charge for the South Okanagan Similkameen region, Haugli began his career in Penticton in 1991.  He spent nine memorable years in this community before his career took him to northern B.C. and then Surrey.

When he moved back to Penticton last year, Haugli got involved with United Way as part of the campaign team.  He also helped determine how the funds were allocated back into the community.

“Through my experiences with United Way in 2010, I was truly touched when I learned how our community partner agencies help vulnerable youth, elders and people in need,” said Haugli.  “I am proud to be a part of the United Way and living united.”

Haugli replaces 2010 United Way chair Dan Albas.  Albas will stay closely connected to United Way as he moves into his new role as the local MP.

“My heart is with United Way and I’m so pleased that it is in such great hands with Brad,” said Albas.  “Brad understands what needs to be done to help make our communities stronger.”

Albas will continue as an honorary cabinet member and join the team when he is in town.
