Hospital sale

I am very concerned about the sale of the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital and the plans for the $30 million received from that sale. We (the voters) continue to pay for the bonds which originally constructed and maintained the hospital.

We also voted no on the new hospital. If the proceeds from this sale do not pay off these bonds, I don't feel it is right to use these monies for other entities, i.e. motel, new hospital campus, assisted living apartments, etc., as proposed in the newest plan.

I wonder how many voters recognize that our state representative, Jay Rodne, doesn't understand the word 'no.' I doubt he does, as he is a major supporter of the new relocated hospital.
