Stir the Pot

Good article by Nick Welsh, raising the lack of transparency regarding the merger of Cottage hospital and Sansum Clinic. Who among us will not be unaffected by this merger of monoliths? And yet, as Nick points out, no one is stirring up this pot. So where is our representative in the federal government, Ms. Capps? If this is not up her alley, then what is?

Similarly, although not federal representatives, our other elected officials, to the city, county, and state, should be putting whatever pressure they can mount toward getting some disclosure out to the public.

I am sure not happy about this apparent lack of interest by those who we have chosen to represent us.
