Dent talked about what future plans will be discussed with the commission and what issues they want to make sure the people are aware of.
"I'm going to have to get together with the other commissioners, and discuss where we are with the director and find out what issues have been raised, but the quality provisions in the act are certainly rights that we want to make sure everybody in the North is aware of."
Dent was also open about what he hopes to bring to the table for the commission moving forward
"I'm hoping that I'll be able to improve on how people are aware of the legislation and what it's meant to accomplish."
