I am troubled about the politicizing of the San Juan County Public Hospital District Board election. Bill Williams and Monica Harrington stated in a public forum that they have asked both political parties to endorse them. We also have a political group posting signs all over San Juan Island pushing for an agenda driven “politically aligned group” of candidates.
The public hospital district board should not be a partisan position, so I will be voting for candidates who have not chosen a political agenda to bring to the hospital district board. I hope others will join me in voting for Jenny Ledford, and “Doc” Bill Hancock, as they clearly are nonpartisan candidates and they seem to have the best interests of the community in mind, rather than personal agendas.
