Dear Mayor and Commissioners,
At least one commissioner has raised with at least one resident the specter of Memorial Hospital expansion requiring a referendum under Amendment 4.
The hospital expansion did not involve a land use change. It would not, therefore, have been covered by Amendment 4.
There are all too many of these "false facts" being bandied about. When they come from elected officials, one result is increased cynicism among the public.
Another is questioning the very competence of our elected officials. This is not helpful for any of us.
