The dissenting director, Jack Hickey, has been elected to three four-year terms by voters who continue to question the validity of this health care district and are unhappy he has never changed anything. But he is only one vote of disapproval and cannot even get a motion seconded.
This election must get Jack the support of two other candidates whose purpose would also be to bring this decision to the voters. If your vote for Jack Hickey also includes a for for DePaula and McDowell, together they plan to do that. If you split your vote with another candidate, we will have lost the opportunity again to have voters make the decision for our health care district's tax collection.
All the time voters have been denied this decision there have been a great many beneficiaries of this board's generosity of our taxes. They certainly want to keep those donations coming. Is it too late already to stop this controversial tax collection because so many votes will come from those benefiting from a tax distribution which so many of us question?
