Hopefully, Wes Alles will be booted off the Board. I hope the new board members will not vote to buy another hospital in Timbuktu! Good riddance. Get rid of the criminal element on the Board!

So happy that this year we can actually say that we have truly "elected" board members, not ones that were appointed and then "re-elected" without contest. Vast improvement. I, too, am thrilled to see Alles and his legacy of dysfunction go.

So glad to hear we have new hope at ECH. I do think the old board members, like Allen, do get booted soon!

Wes Alles was the strongest, most accomplished candidate. He contributed significantly to our hospitals, the people and the district. We will miss him greatly.

I hope that the new members know what they are doing. Sounds weak to me. Alles was very experienced and contributed a lot to the strength and stellar reputation of the hospital.

ECH District Board members are non-paid positions and require substantial commitment of personal time and resources. Congratulations to incoming Board Members and thanks to current incumbents for 10 years of service to the community.
