Speir would benefit hospital

I’m writing to express total support for Bert Speir for Whidbey Island Public Hospital District commissioner. I have known Bert since 1980, and worked closely with him in our Navy careers. Both Bert and I were commanding officers of the Naval Hospital at NAS Whidbey. I regard him as a consummate leader of people and adept manager of resources; he was exemplary in these matters as a hospital commanding officer.

In addition, he’s a proven and accomplished team builder who can bring diverse personalities together in pursuit of a common goal. We would benefit greatly from having Bert Speir as a hospital commissioner!
