Legislature Fails County In?Home Vote

To the Readers’ Forum:

Where is the logic in refusing to sell? Think about this when you vote on Tuesday.

The county should not be in the nursing home business … period! Government should only do those things that private interest cannot do, or fail to do.

We had a reputable buyer – two of our legislators took the time to visit, check on backgrounds and were very impressed. Did R. Whitney or Lori Cornell make that effort? No.

Services would have expanded.

Jobs were not going to be lost.

Our older citizens would have good care.

We who pay heavy taxes – all of us – would have received $16 million and eliminated future losses. Where is the logic?

Most of our legislators voted in the best interest of our community – thanks for trying.
