LETTERS: Strong sense of civic duty

Editor:

Re: Ousted Fraser Health chair praises staff, April 15.

I write to publicly express my gratitude to David Mitchell for his 3½ years of service to our region as chair of the Fraser Health Authority.

He has given a tremendous amount of time and expertise to the health authority for a small financial retainer and expenses.

I have met with him on many occasions in his capacity as board chair, and have always found him to be approachable, principled, compassionate and well informed. He has an understanding of the financial complexities and challenges facing Fraser Health and has been a positive advocate for our health services.

I have appreciated his professionalism, his caring, his active concern and effort to improve our health-care system in a time of increased demands and economic restraint. David’s strong sense of civic duty has made him a fixture for many organizations and events, to the betterment of our community.

MLA Gordon Hogg, Surrey-White Rock
