Members Kelly Cooper and Johnson argued over whether it was fair to close the conversation without public comment, with Cooper insisting that Welles’ comments didn’t have any bearing on the vote since he wasn’t present… The motion to reconsider failed on another 4-4 tie. The question will not be put to voters this fall. Assembly Member Brent Johnson expressed his disappointment that Ninilchik residents will continue paying the higher SPH mill rate, though they live closer to CPH… Assembly Member Welles has been absent due to several emergency surgeries this summer. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Despite Assembly Member Stan Welles’ expression that he would be in favor of moving the boundary between the Central and South Peninsula Hospitals, the issue was not aired for reconsideration last night. Asm. Cooper (Homer): “The reality is that the eight of us sitting here now, nothing has changed from those eight, and so what was decided at the end of the last meeting should stand. I, therefore, don’t see any reason to reconsider this.” Asm. Johnson (Clam Gulch): “This is an unfair practice for the people that live in that area and I hope that this is not the end of it, that these seeds are sown deep and that those people take it to heart. I’m certain there are many of them that are affected a lot and for Homer hospital, I have this to say: ‘Pharaoh Hospital, let my people go.’”
