Burgstahler deserves your support, vote

Print Article

Scott Burgstahler deserves your support and vote! Scottís experience and wisdom; exhibited through business ownership, his medical profession, time and service, and knowledge of our community, are essential to the Pend Oreille Hospital District Board.

The POHD is charged with delivering health care and does so through Bonner General Hospital et al. BGH is an extraordinary health care resource that most rural communities would love to offer. We want to retain the services of our hospital, and itís clinics, and our ability to expand and enhance them.

I fail to understand why people choose to see essential services as a tax rather than an investment in our community. Letís remember why we chose Sandpoint, and not eastern Montana, as our home. Beyond its community and vibrancy, itís because of the quality and choice of services here - those that protect and provide for us. Our hospital is a critical component of our well-being.

Labeling, tearing down people, espousing false testimony, pridefulness and boastful chest thumping are completely contrary to supporting and fostering well-being. Letís protect our communityís character and qualities by supporting those who understand, and have proven their role as good stewards, acting with wisdom and experience.
