Paul Harper's Agenda to keep the Glen Rose Medical Center OPEN!

Today Paul Harper announces the Agenda to keep the Glen Rose Medical Center OPEN!

  1. Eliminate the new property tax - The hospital should be able to run within its means, not on the back of the taxpayers. The tax, which would be higher had we the petitioners not gotten involved when we did, is currently 10.5 cents. Remember that three people who are on the ballot voted already to make it 12.5 cents, what do you think they will do if elected? Taxing the citizens is not the route we should be taking, we should be following Hood County's lead and enter into an agreement with a 3rd party. Hood County has a hospital district but charges no hospital district tax.
  2. Cease operations in Hood County - Pecan Plantation in Hood County is a private exclusive gated community yet we are funding their healthcare facilities while Somervell County residents are not allowed to even see the building, let alone use the facilities. You will hear 'some' say Pecan Plantation makes a profit for the medical center, yet when you ask for the data to prove it, they can't show it because they comingle the books instead of keeping it seperate as it should be. If this place was making a profit then why did we initiate the property tax? 
  3. Close the 501a slush fund - funds are moved to this account from the general fund when the 'account is low' without a paper trail instead of when the funds have been requested and approved. This procedure needs to end and have requests and approvals for all funds being spent.
  4. Bring in hospital administration experts - the people running the hospital now got there by who they know, not what they know. It's time for some experts in hospital administration to be brought in to run things the way they are supposed to be run.

Six individuals on the ballot, that you listed, ARE for the best interest of our community. The hospital has squandered our tax dollars for years. Unaccounted for expenses should cease and operational costs should always be transparent to the community. The taxpayers that signed the petition (that the current hospital board refused/denied) have another chance to have their voices heard. If we stand together on this issue, our community will benefit in many ways.

The OUTCOME and IMPORTANCE of this election is ENORMOUS to the citizens of Somervell County!  It's either going to "make us" or " break us". We are literally financially " broke " already! Please choose wisely. The problems will only get worse if drastic changes aren't made I and we keep existing board members!
