UPDATE: I also can’t help to think that Sanford may be pushing to have a contract with the city to provide our community health. But unlike Avera and the Link, Sanford would want to make some monies.

While at first blush, this may look bad (conflicts between the two government entities) what caught my attention was that they slipped him in ONE day after the current council’s term ended. They really should have been a part of this appointment, but the mayor was probably concerned he wouldn’t be able to get him thru.

Joe does have experience with healthcare at Sanford. I told someone he will LIKELY wait until his father Dan is elected to the County Commission and will likely resign after November, then the Commission, which will consist of his father, can appoint someone. Who says these folks don’t plan ahead? I keep telling peeps, they know how to win, they just can’t lead once they get there.


General Public Input last night was a thrill (FF to the end) fun watching a chair who is illegally serving.


Also, I was at Carnegie after lunch doing some research on executive orders and the new councilors were having ‘school’ in the chambers. So cute. Don’t worry if you screw up in your first couple of meetings, nobody is paying attention.

    Wow, what a step backward! This City can do so much better for a City Health Director.
    But a former Sanford clinic director isn’t much different than interim oversight of the City Health Department by the City Finance department, izzit?
