Drath: Opposes hasty move by Schwinge, Edwards and Smith Featured

Dear Editor,

It is disturbing to me that three public hospital district commissioners on San Juan Island hope to effect change in the combining of our EMS organization and our fire district. All three are soon to end their tenures. This seems a hasty way to leave their posts as commissioners.

We have a Citizens’ Advisory Group which has recommended more time to complete its work

. We will soon have four new hospital district commissioners. Along with current commissioner, Anna Lisa Lindstrum, they are the people who should address the proposal and proceed with our community’s future on this matter, along with the existing advisory group and the fire district. I am thankful for Bob Jarman’s letter in support of the need for total agreement of the hospital commissioners on this important decision.

Thank you,

Eileen Drath
