A member of the Quinte Health Care Advisory Council has shot down any thought of putting mayors or wardens back on the Q-H-C board.
Lyle Van Clief was commenting on local councils calling for a return of the politicians to the new board. Vanclief says the six-member Advisory Council has years of experience in both public and private sector management and did a lot of research on governance. Vanclief claims the previous Q-H-C board was not functional, and that directors based on skills and experience…not geography…have proven effective. The new plan also calls for people from various communities to meet regularly with the new board…and he say local councils will be kept in the loop.
