There are a few challenges.
Obviously outreach is going to be an important one for me. The lobbyists don't know me. One of my challenges will be to settle my credibility and instill a trust and a conversation, demonstrating that I'm here to do the mandate and do it right.
Another challenge likely will be walking into an office with a $4.4-million budget. It's relatively small, so I'll be looking for ways to make sure that we meet all these obligations within budget. Commissioner Shepherd has always said that she led a lean and effective office. I believe her, and hopefully, I will continue in that strength.
Coming into office, as well as settling my credibility with the team, with the employees.... It's small. It's 28 employees. I will meet with them individually, and I will make sure we continue to meet the mandate.
The five-year review will certainly be on the top of the list, and defending the ongoing litigation as well.
