Needed: Public Truth Officer

Am I alone in thinking that the 'good guys' need more of a voice, regarding the Hospital District?

Glen Rose Current(which doesn't seem very current) has no articles about GRMC that I could find, but there several letters to the Editor, complaining about the "four" board members...  That misinformed woman is working overtime to misinform others.  She's an active commenter on the Reporter website, also.  And on the 'Newspaper' Facebook page...  Speaking of the Reporter...  The previous Editor, Amanda Kimble, told me she was shocked when Ron Hankins confronted her and informed her that it was her duty to inform the public of how horrible Paul Harper's ideas were, and the disaster that would surely follow his election...she considered it was her duty to offer the public all relevant information on all the candidates and let the public decide.  Harper was elected.  Kimble was replaced.  And, in my opinion, pretty much from day one, the new Reporter Editor has been obviously biased against the "four" did Ron Hankins get the Reporter in his pocket?

While the "four" have tried to get a grip on the situation, they've been harried on all sides...  It was clear to me that Dr. Peters used his disability for the political purpose of stopping the first meeting...  A member of the community spreads misinformation on every public forum she can find...  I've heard that members of the hospital staff delibrately delay access to public information...  I've been told the administration lied to the board on numerous issues.  And is clearly using delaying tactics to try and stretch things out until the next election...  A former local candidate, consumate polititian and charlatan that he so obviously is, abuses the legal system to get his political way...  All the while, Ron Hankins appears to be conspiring with the administration & the other two of the "three" board members to oppose anything the "four" are in favor of - even things that he should agree with!  And, sadly, a considerable number of locals buy into all this BS.

Those of us who know the real score and aren't affected by the scaremongering need to get organized and spread the truth!  The truth doesn't sell as well as a lie, so we've got our work cut out for us...  But, unless we start fighting back against this propoganda-induced paranoia, we'll forever be sadled with increased taxes and corruption.

@nmlgr- Welcome to the site! Glad you are posting! 

I agree with you. I've always like the SCOTUS adage that the answer to bad speech is more speech. And 

‘A lie will go round the world while truth is pulling its boots on.’

The problem to me, is when people accept what others say without truly looking into it for themselves, compounded by the difficulty when, for example, you can't FIND the truth because, say, a local paper has not published it. I commend you for wanting to speak up, everyone has freedom of speech.
