Letters | Support Hauglie for hospital commission, says Hearing

To citizens of the Snoqualmie Valley Hospital District,

I have known incumbent hospital commissioner Kevin Hauglie for over 15 years and he is an intelligent, knowledgeable, honorable and moral man. He is known to put the interests of his constituents ahead of his personal needs and desires.

Meanwhile a sitting hospital commissioner, Gene Pollard, is actively campaigning against Kevin because the two have not always agreed on hospital issues. Commissioner Pollard currently has four years remaining on his term as commissioner. Mr. Pollard doesn’t give up his current seat unless he is successful in unseating Kevin which would then leave a vacancy. What purpose does this serve the citizens but to waste taxpayer money on unnecessary elections? Further, I want issues to be fully vetted and I believe diversity on any elected body results in better decision making. I encourage everyone to consider these facts and vote for Kevin Hauglie for hospital commisioner.
