The Crow Wing County Board Tuesday elected Doug Houge as board chairman during its first meeting of the new year.

At the board’s annual reorganization meeting, the board also elected Commissioner Rachel Reabe Nystrom as vice chair.

Commissioner Paul Thiede was the board chairman in 2011. The move follows the board’s traditional rotation with commissioners in the vice chair’s seat taking over as chair with the new year.
