Letter to the editor: Bob all the way

A constituent's choice to vote for Independent candidate Bob Simpson.

Editor:

Bob Simpson has earned my full support by stretching far beyond the field of politics and making life-altering changes for me and for those around me.

I was diagnosed with a life-changing auto-immune disease in October 2011. My disease flared up once again in September 2012 and with expenses adding up and no support from my Extended Health benefits or PharmaCare, I had nowhere to turn. We explained the seriousness and urgency of my situation to Bob and he did everything in his power to help. To our surprise, I received a phone call within a couple of days explaining that my doctor had received an approval letter. Now, months later, my disease is in remission and I’m doing great because I received my treatment on time. I’d like to thank Bob and his staff for their quick actions and their meaningful and much-appreciated support.

Our family has a lot of respect for Bob Simpson and his staff for the work they do for their constituents. He is very approachable and very effective as our independent MLA.
