“I’m sure many, many people are happy to have you taking the lead in Haliburton’s political arena. I know I would be if I still lived there. You’re honest, decent, smart, and trustworthy, and you’re always able to see the subtleties in the big – usually complex, picture. I think you also take care of people’s feelings, even (or especially) when you’re disagreeing with them.”
– Susan Wilson
“Thank you, Carol, for your ongoing updates. For many of us, you are THE window to the (flood) situation. You're providing more updates and images than any news agency I've been able to locate, and we're hanging on your every post.”

“I would like to pass on what I heard about the flood from several folks during my shift at the Peppermill last night, as well as from talking to people around Boshkung.
A huge thank you goes out to Reeve and Warden Carol Moffatt for all of her efforts to keep us updated. Her ability to provide timely updates has given people a perspective on the greater picture and I’ve had several people pass on that they felt some comfort in knowing that there were things being done, and that there is real leadership at work.
With Carol's concise factual updates, and awesome ability to simplify even the most complex problems into a language everyone can understand, people are seeing where they are relative to a much larger disaster.
Thank you Carol.”
