Letters | Pollard brings change to hospital district
It’s high time for a change at the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital. Gene Pollard will bring that change. Gene has decided, and many of us agree, that our hospital has lost its way.
It is not a hospital. It’s a nursing home and a few medical clinics, all of which compete with the private sector. Our taxes have paid millions of dollars for this hospital.
The hospital has lost those millions, and gone broke three times. Millions have been lost opening and closing medical clinics.
The agreement between the hospital and Leisure Time Resorts would not have been signed if Gene Pollard was involved. This agreement cost the district (you and me) $7 million! The recent comment that it would just be too expensive to build on the Leisure Time property is baloney! They didn’t build the hospital on the property because the county refused to change the zoning on the property. The hospital was stuck with a contract they couldn’t get out of. If it wasn’t for the taxes, that are squeezed out of us every year, this hospital would have closed years ago.
We need Gene Pollard! Vote for common sense! Vote for oversight! Vote for Gene Pollard, hospital commissioner!
