Letter to the Editor 2-22-13

Dear Editor,

We as a county have a big question coming up on Feb. 26. I feel that the county does need a new hospital. The tax hike would only be 75 cents on each $100 spent! I was born and raised here and we are doing the same with our kids. I hope that we (the county) vote yes for the new hospital and keep the great health care we have right here in Cloud County. So I just ask the citizens of Cloud County to get out and vote YES!

Kenny Allen
