I do think that the Center is a great resource, and Betsi’s contribution is a great resource. There are so many issues, that if we work together, they might not be completely solved, but they will be better for working together. I am philosophically aligned with the vision that Betsi has for the Center, and I am looking forward to maintaining our collaboration and finding solutions across county lines.
I want to applaud her leadership. She is a strong leader, and is tenacious. She continues to push things, she never gives up. Never gives up. The Center needs to evolve, and needs to organically evolve. I do believe that it has a great purpose, otherwise I wouldn’t support it!
I see the Center as a facilitator, convener, and engaging the community to focus on some problems and issues that we have throughout the community.
