Guest Post: Jackson County Supervisors not completely honest with Jackson County residents

It appears the Jackson County Board of Supervisors and their appointed Trustees are not being completely open and transparent with the residents of Jackson County. The claims of protecting the hospitals privacy is just that – claims. Could their actions or rather lack of action be an attempt to protect current and former employees, friends or perhaps themselves by withholding public information? Who are the individuals responsible for the Singing River Hospital System’s pension downfall?

Honesty and revealing the truth to the citizens of Jackson County should be easy. The many inconsistent and off-the-wall statements our supervisors have uttered make it difficult to believe that any one of them is credible.

Are the Board of Supervisors saying the Trustees have all the power of operating the Singing River Hospital System? If the appointed Trustees are as qualified and levelheaded as some proclaim, why haven’t they unearthed the many improprieties reported to the Singing River Hospital System over the years?

In the upcoming Jackson County Board of Supervisors’ election, remember the incumbents who are asking for your vote. Have they performed the duties they were elected to fulfill?

Why not ask a Singing River Hospital System retiree their opinion?
