My wife and I have been privileged to live and work in this great community that we were both born and raised in. A large part of the draw that keeps us here in Arlington is the quality of life that we all share. Our community provides us with great schools, hospital and medical services, city government, police and fire, parks, etc., that allows us a sense of ownership. Cascade Valley Hospital is a key and important part of the mix that we all call our neighborhood. Aside from providing excellent medical services, the hospital district brings over four hundred jobs to our area.
Not unlike everything else that we own, the hospital requires upgrades and investments for expansion and growth. It is time now for an investment.
Our grandchildren are the seventh generation of our families that have been served well by Cascade Valley Hospital. And it is our sincerest hope that this service will continue for generations to come.
Please vote Yes for Proposition 1 Cascade Valley Hospital.
