COMMENTARY · 23rd November 2011
I would like to say thank you and Happy Retirement to Councilor Gerd Gottschling.
It was Dr. Gottschling's last council meeting, last night, he has retired from politics in Kitimat. Congratulations.
There was no mention of his long years of service, dedication or his committment to Kitimat.
So on behalf of many of us Kitimatian's have a great retirement.
THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES

Congratulations and thanks!

I believe I was one of Gerd’s first patients when he set up his practice here so many years ago in 1969! A gentle and caring Doctor is what I will always remember and he was my dentist till he retired just a few months ago!
A very spiritual man he has worked tirelessly for the community, and has given so much of his time to other worldly and charitable causes. I really appreciate his work he did at council, the most significant being in holding the council accountable to the public! I only hope some of the new councillors will step in to replace a little of his respect, love and caring that he has shown for Kitimat for so many years! I believe he always tried his best for us as patients, tax payers and as a community!
Congratulations on your retirement Gerd you deserve a nice rest! Thanks!
