As a nurse, I'm hurt and offended that Dean Tran criticized Sue Chalifoux Zephir for her efforts to stop our local hospital from closing vital pediatric and cardiac care services in our community. How dare he refer to the important press conference held by nine state and local elected officials as a stunt? ("War of Words," Sentinel & Enterprise, Sept. 21, 2018.) Councilor Chalifoux Zephir and her fellow officials are doing their job fighting to protect access to quality health care for all of us. It's time for you to start doing your job too, Senator.
You haven't shown up at any of the public hearings about the hospital closings. Until you do, you need to stop the complaining about the elected officials who are focused on their job and standing up for local patients.
