A sincere thank you is due to the participating artisans who made their diligence and professional craft available to the public.
A big event does need someone to organize it; but it also does not come together without the effort and hard work of countless volunteers.
There are people who are extremely disappointed by your rush to approve both the Shoreline Master Plan as rewritten and the Eastsound Sub Area Plan as rewritten.
Thanks to everyone who responded to our call for blankets to help keep the animals warm
I am so thankful to live in a community that takes care of its own.
I had an amazing time in the recent campaign enjoying many pleasant encounters.
I’m sure I’m not the only one who is grateful that election season is behind us.
I want to thank San Juan islanders for electing me to the public hospital district commission.
Now that the election is over, we can turn our attention to the 2016 county budget.
I want to thank all my wonderful supporters who offered their help, advice, and encouragement during this long and contentious election.
I feel that a major and glaring difference between the two medical facilities on San Juan Island is that of humanity.
This has been such a dispiriting campaign. We’ve seen three candidates engage in spreading falsehoods and smears regarding their opponents, and repeating them even when confronted with documentation that what they were saying was false.
The “civil investigative demand” issued by the state attorney general’s office, alleging Medicaid fraud, is quite stunning.
That is so that we can get our public hospital district commissioners to consider more carefully the people who are served by our public tax dollars.
Even a small fundraiser involves lots of people, and I’d like to thank everyone for a great party!
I hope islanders and local media take a deeper look and consider the consequences of this type of campaigning.
As the hospital board elections intensify, several interesting issues have arisen, including the allegation that a candidate's having received the endorsement of a county party organization somehow improperly changes the election from nonpartisan to partisan.
I encourage the voters of the SJC Public Hospital District to review the information on the Believe the Best website.
The services provided by the hospital, while imperfect, are better than having no hospital at all
Passage of an EMS levy by regaining the public’s trust that their tax dollars will be used wisely and efficiently; making sure all islanders have access to the best possible range of health care services.
I encourage all San Juan County residents to become fully informed about the facts related to PeaceHealth Peace Island Medical Center.
Sit down, have a cup of coffee, and really listen to someone who has a different opinion. I know its wishful thinking, but we just might learn something.
If you are thirsty for the truth but you don’t have time to do all the research, then I suggest you go to the website Believe the Best.
So the truth is all through this website for voters to go to so they can make an informed decision when they mark their ballots.
I hope you will see the gifts we have been given and put your energies into making this hospital a community endeavor. It is not“we” and “they.” It is “us.”
If we are going to pass a levy in 2016 we’re going to need a solid, defensible EMS budget that is the basis for a realistic levy proposal to the voters.
Are our tax dollars being spent in the best ways by the hospital district commission? That’s the issue in the coming election.
I believe that Monica Harrington, Barbara Sharp and Bill Williams are the candidates that will find solutions to these challenges, and I urge you to vote or them.
In our peaceful island community we have unique activities, needs and people. We are islanders.
I feel that they will work with the PeaceHealth to keep the incredible level of care that has been built.
We as a community need to establish some real, transparent public oversight over what goes on at Peace Island Medical Center
Need we ask who these public hospital district candidates will represent if elected?
We need to ask why PeaceHealth loyalists are so afraid of losing control of a public hospital board.
The public disclosure reports show that the candidates who were recruited by the unelected PIMC hospital board are being funded by a handful of well-to-do people who are shipping money to PeaceHealth’s public relations consultant so that same consultant can manage a PR campaign for those candidates.
As an OB/GYN at PeaceHealth I have never had a hospital ethics committee tell me what I could or could not do for my patient.
In a recent letter in the Journal Levi Rawls stated that no hospital board candidates asked for endorsements from the San Juan County Republican Party
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 believe Monica will remain a tireless champion for patients’ rights, while ensuring that our incredible island health care system continues to provide for all of our health care needs.
Our island is lucky to have a hospital, how many communities our size have a hospital?
The legal actions Harrington proposes would divert resources from care to ideologies that have nothing to do with the board.
