Return control of Valley Medical to commissioners | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Savannah Clifford-Visker raises some valid points in her voters pamphlet regarding her candidacy for Valley Medical Center Commissioner. She has a good understanding of the current situation and hopefully could work toward making some worthwhile changes if elected.

One wonders if the alliance with UW Med would have been approved if put to the hospital district voters. The effort to expand Maple Valley into the hospital district was definitely disapproved by voters several years ago, so apparently the commissioners did not want to risk the district taxpayers’ disapproval with the UW Alliance.

The Board of Trustees has too much control of Valley Medical Center. It’s time to return control to the Board of Commissioners.

Betty Cooper,

Renton
