Letter to the editor: Paying for politics in Douglas County over Tri-County Health exit

Posted

Now that our Douglas County leadership fulfilled their promise to walk away from Tri-County Health and appoint a board that a majority of the members have no health background but do have strong political ties that will carry out the political agenda of the party, how much can taxpayers be expected to pay for this new health organization? Is it going to more or less than the $2 million currently being paid?

I would suspect they have no clue!

For a group that speaks from a platform of lower taxes, voice of choice on personal decisions, where was the choice for taxpayers to give a voice in this move? Were they afraid of what the outcome of a vote?
