“I am saddened by his resignation. He has done a good job. He is fit for the position,” he said.

Gordon, also chairman of the Senate Blue Ribbon, and Senate justice and human rights committees, also thanked the former chairman for his dedicated service to the SSS and the invaluable support that helped bring about the SSS Bill 2019 that he authored.

He expressed hopes that Dooc’s replacement would have the same standard of integrity and competence to ensure that the needs of the SSS members are properly and timely met while also rendering the continuous profitability of the SSS to ensure its financial viability.
