Final Chapter Written

This will fall in the "follow up" category from the senate campaign of 2008. One of the hot button issues was the A.L. Memorial Hospital and an advertisement by Darrel Aubertine stating he saved over 200 jobs. The topic created considerable back and forth between the two campaigns.

The final chapter is written for the hospital and it spells out an orderly closure plan. The closure plan calls for an incremental reduction in beds from March until they cease accepting inpatient admissions on June 15, 2009.

June 16, 2009 forward the facility will no longer be a hospital and it will convert to an outpatient clinic.

How tragically sad for teh people of Fulton to lose a friend and valued member of the community.

Equally tragic is that Sen. Aubertine used this community and these poor, poor, soon-to-be-out-of-work staffers to protect his own job.

Shame on him.

Here's the Valley News story.

Ah who cares? It was a campaign lie, brought to you by people who knew better, but thought you would believe the bs at least until after the election.

You did. The joke is on you.
