Letters | Candidate's views don’t match hospital reality

I am responding to a candidate’s statement in the most recent King County Voter’s Pamphlet. My concern is that newcomers to the area may not realize that Gene Pollard’s rants relating to his running for hospital commissioner simply don’t match reality.

He has chosen to use the voter’s pamphlet, a tax-supported public document, to bash a local business. Meanwhile, local school board and city council members and their staff and veteran political watchers are familiar with Gene’s antics and will tell you he has no credibility—just ask them.

The Snoqualmie Valley Hospital is a vibrant, financially health and growing organization recognized throughout the state for its leadership in its swing bed program, regionally for its cooperation and collaboration with other healthcare institutions and locally for providing quality care with a personal touch through its operation of a 25-bed critical access hospital, 24/7 emergency room, local clinics and community outreach.

You are welcome to learn more about the hospital district by contacting me directly at fritz.ribary@gmail.com.
