Letters to the Editor

Doctor would rather be fishing

I would like to thank my fellow Whidbey Islanders for the many calls and letters of encouragement that I have received over the last several weeks.

Many of you have encouraged me to apply, as a doctor well known to the community, and resident of Coupeville, for the Whidbey General Hospital Board of Directors.

I do deeply appreciate the votes of confidence. At this time, however, I have several unfinished issues with the hospital that will require the board’s consideration.

A new era is beginning for the hospital! A huge step in the right direction has been made with the elimination of the board/administration conflict of interest. As citizens, let’s continue to demand honesty and reform of our local hospital.

Also ... halibut season opens Friday! Ling cod season opened this morning. You can talk to me soon for a catch report!
