III - HEALTH CARE ISSUES
C. Current Years (2005-2015)
- The POA lead the opposition to the 2005 proposed Sumter County Hospital Tax which would have taxed Sumter County residents $200 - $300 per home for use by our hospital and would also give 20% of the tax off the top to the developer's foundation. It was defeated.
- The POA assisted in bringing to light care issues at the hospital which resulted in LRMC hiring a new CEO, new ER Director, dedicating more staff and resources to the ER, and bringing three Villagers to sit on the TVRH Board.
