    That was an amazing interview Brigitte. Yes, start early with promoting continued education, bring back some of the senior citizen exercise offerings. As far as health we’ve been encouraging BCMH to call in the National Guard to administer covid vaccines, we need leadership in that area…
    It’s wonderful to hear all the positive goals you have and you have the energy to accomplish these.
    Thank you for all your efforts.
