Reader Opinion: Get the issue resolved

Regarding the Cuyuna Regional Medical Center board meeting on March 16, I was disappointed the issue of many employees dismissed, displaced, terminated, resigned or fired was not addressed at all but ignored and "swept under the carpet."

It also amazed me that there were no questions or discussion on any of the issues or proposals that they were to vote on, but proceeded directly to a yes "rubber stamp" on every vote.

I have served on many committees in the past (mostly elected, some appointed). Usually there is a general concern question along with answers back and forth. Usually the public is encouraged to take part in and be a contributing member of the community.

Not here! Board member Fred Hale took writers and those who speak up to the "woodshed."

He said they were "negative" and "mud slingers" and should not air out dirty laundry to the public or out of the area.

Does a concerned public not have the right to think, have an opinion, or use free speech without being branded or called names? Not to stand up is worse and brings out other names like "sheep."

It has been noted that people that have been opposed to hearing any complaints or criticism are on CRMC staff or payroll. Nothing less would be expected.

What I would like to see at the next meeting is the issues that have affected the employees.

Shucky darn, let's get this issue resolved!
