Our Opinion: KVHD Seismic Upgrade

There is a lot of conversation and opinion being shared around the valley regarding the Kern Valley Healthcare District seismic upgrade; to support or not to support, General Obligation (GO) Bond versus a Parcel Tax. The problem is, those conversations and opinions are not being shared with the right people, and the right people are the hospital board of directors and CEO.
By August 1, the Board of Directors must decide which option they are going to place on the ballot for the November election, the GO Bond or the Parcel Tax. You still have one more opportunity to voice your opinion. Thursday from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Senior Center, the Board of Directors, CEO Tim McGlew and the contractor will be on hand to answer questions and listen to your thoughts and concerns. This is your last chance folks, come out and let your voice be heard. If you don’t speak up now and the outcome is not to your liking, you have no place to complain. Please encourage your friends and business associates to come out as well. This decision will affect all of us.
