We who believe that the region will benefit from a state-of-the-art medical center decided to publish our views–first on Facebook, and now on this website–as a collective, to emphasize the point that this issue is not about any individual; it’s about community-wide support for a positive, transformational project. We are not elected officials. We have no private interest, no special expertise.
Like many in the community, we have grown weary of the continued negativity, from a relatively small number of persons, looming disproportionately large in social and traditional media. Our intent is to offer an alternative, and, as posts to our Facebook page have already demonstrated, a people are pleased to voice their support for the project.
