Cartwright is a vote for Arlington

I have lived in Arlington for almost 40 years. I have had both good and bad experiences at Cascade Valley Hospital but I still believe in this community.

I have a hard time understanding why some people do not want a doctor on the hospital commission. Dr Cartwright is a well respected man and would serve us well. When he moved to Arlington he did do his surgery’s at CVH but had too many concerns and when he voiced them he was told to leave, so he did.

I attended the Chamber luncheon for the Candidates and was shocked to see how little Margo Powell knew about the hospital. She seemed like a nice person but could not answer a simple question about the details of the hospital expansion. After serving for 11 years I expected more.

Dr Cartwright gives a lot of his time and energy to this community and if you check the facts you will agree that he is the right person for Hospital Commissioner Position No. 3
