The need to revitalise the Counties Manukau District Health Board and the importance of providing more financial and human capital to enable increased accessibility and deliver quality service have prompted many members of our communities to contest in the ongoing District Health Board Elections.
Among them is Sally Wong, who is known for her selfless service and for promoting the qualities of Love, Care, Understanding and Peace that are embedded in the teachings of Gautama Buddha.
She is seeking election to the Counties Manukau District Health Board as a member of the C & R Team, with the motto, ‘Health is Wealth.’
Sally said that she is also a strong supporter of reliable, quality healthcare treatment facilities made available closer to people’s homes.
“The Counties Manukau District Board should focus on healthy living, communicating well in the right language and meeting the needs of diverse cultural group,” she said.
“As a part of the C&R Team, I will use my professional expertise to ensure that our District Health Board receives its fair share of government funding and spends it wisely. Our community will be richer by working together to deliver a health system that focuses on the things that matter,” she said.
As a Member of Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand and as a Chartered Secretary of Governance New Zealand Sally has managed complex budgets to deliver professional services to meet the expectations of communities.
As a member of the Ray White Real Estate Team in East Auckland, Sally works earnestly and tirelessly for both sellers and buyers.
A real estate transaction can be like a minefield at times, but Sally takes the stress out of the process by doing all the hard work, while delivering an exceptional client experience.
She listens to what a potential buyer really wants before selecting relevant listings and taking buyers through those properties, saving them both time and hassle. Relentless in her pursuit, she goes an extra mile matching people to properties.
Sincere Social Worker
Our association with Sally dates back several years as we recognise her as a sincere volunteer at the Fo Guan Shan Buddhist Temple in the East Auckland suburb of Botany and as the Vice-President of the Buddha’s Light International Association, which manages educational, cultural and social activities. She and her associates have helped more than 6000 students learn essential life skills such as positive relationship and connectedness.
Sally is a strong advocate of improved treatment, reduced waiting time and better quality treatment of Cancer patients.
“It is also important to ensure that all infrastructure-related issues, including building, maintenance, improvements, investment and capital expenditure are all constantly reviewed and effectively administered. We should have a system to understand the concerns of our people,” she said.
