I’ll be voting for Boydston

I have received numerous campaign mailers over the last few weeks and glanced at them only briefly - except for one.
I was amazed to see that the senior community supported the incumbents.

These are the same incumbents who allowed the Transitional Care Unit at the hospital to close. That means when patients no longer need full hospital care but still need more care and monitoring than they can get at home, they must leave this valley for that care.

These are the same incumbents who voted to allow the hospital to expand its office buildings and parking structures, but didn't demand more hospital beds, operating rooms and a TCU.

As our community ages, we need to be more vigilant about caring for our seniors. TimBen Boydston was on the street with the seniors picketing and protesting the closure of the TCU.

I'll be casting a vote for Boydston, who listens to the concerns of all groups, asks hard questions either off or on the dais and adds his voice to that of ordinary citizens.
