RDMW deserves credit, too

Jamey Furney replies to a critical letter in this week's Gazette.

Dear editor,

Regarding the adjacent letter from Steve Carlisle:

Steve, I’m pretty sure you have always found my door open to you. You are most welcome to distantly rant negatives about me and my involvement in the Hornsby recovery. I have always found that one’s detractors are often one’s best advertising.

I do, however, take issue with you diminishing the great efforts made by the directors and staff of the RDMW. It was their sensitive stick handling of this process that brought the unit back to the North Island. That was always our goal at the North Island Heritage Society.

The fall 2012 meeting of the NIHS had three attendees from Coal Harbour at it, but because Joe Eilertsen was unable to attend and share his ideas, we decided it only fair not to progress with the final location discussions.

I congratulate you on your ‘social media’ successes and I encourage you to continue to participate in that realm where words speak louder than deeds.

James Furney
