Want an independent person who will do an outstanding, honest job on the long-term-care homes abuse problems.
They don’t come any better.
The former city chief medical officer of health and ex-top knock for the Champlain health district is independent as hell, will report the truth, has outstanding people skills and knows the field as well as anyone.
As for being tough and independent, Cushman piloted the indoor smoking ban in the face of angry pub owners, irritable smokers and a sometimes hostile public. Cushman was not afraid to take on the powers that be, including his bosses, when he thought something was vitally important. Just ask a former police chief.
Now if the city only wants a soft-soap job that skims over the surface to provide little bad publicity and make the issue go away, get someone else. Lots of consulting firms will tell the city what it wants to hear so they get work on other contracts which tell the city what it wants to hear. And so on.
Want a report that tells the whole story and develops good solutions? Get Cushman.
