Letter to the Editor: Democrat votes for Republicans

Well our wonderful state and local government strikes again, locks down Gallup for another weekend which caused problems in Grants from lines of people waiting to get into the local Wal-Mart that stretched all the way to the back of the building, to the Milan Super Market having to start shutting down at 7 pm.

Why? Because people were told they could get back into Gallup on Friday but were stopped. These folks need stuff too, so they went to Grants where the stores are still open, and few people have the virus!

So now we have lots of people trying to get in from out of town, lots of empty shelves in the stores, and my guess is more virus than before. Sleep well tonight your government is at work!

For some reason lots of Nurses and Doctors are leaving the Gallup hospital and those left want more PPE, aka Personnel Protective Equipment and want the CEO aka the administrator who gets paid on the average 56k to 85k a year to resign or they are all going to quit?  I learned this some time back when I had to step in as the acting County Emergency Manager until they hired a replacement. I found at the end of day the Emergency Preparedness is the responsibility of all kinds of folks. Sheriffs, Police Chiefs, Fire Chiefs, City Managers, County Managers, Mayors, County Commissioners, Health Departments, and yes even Governors.

So not having enough PPE for your employees has been around for a long time often referred to as OSHA requirements aka safety equipment, boots, gloves, safety glasses etc. But I often had to buy my own if I wanted things that fit me like extra large gloves. If I was lucky enough to get a box of gloves they were too small, were cheaply made, and ripped every time you tried to put them on. If you complained or asked for something else it fell on deaf ears, cost too much, wasn’t in the budget etc.

So when I see the national left wing drive by media yellow journalists try and blame the federal government or President Trump’s Administration, you need not look any further than your local government folks who get the most pay and are supposed to run things.  By the way most of them have jobs for life, and don’t even have to run for office, and those that do try in stay in office year after year as long as they can to get as much money as they can to make sure when they do leave they are set for life and are at the very least millionaires what a deal.

Make sure you vote, I did via absentee ballot. Any new Democrat running for office got my vote to kick out the deadwood. I will be voting for the Republicans in the general election that’s the only way to beat them at their own game.

Average Salary Gallup Hospitals I am sure the CEO is at the high end or well above. [https://www.payscale.com/research/US/Employer=Rehoboth_McKinley_Christian_Hospital/City/Gallup-NM/Page-2]
