The local Lions Club has been compromised by the Sequoia Healthcare District, which is struggling to justify its existence by agressive promotion its Heartsafe Program at taxpayers expense. Meanwhile, Heartsafe Program Manager, Glenn Nielson, appears to be accumulating "political capital" for what will likely be a run for elected office. This wouldn't be the first time the Sequoia Healthcare District's taxpayer funded PR campaigns aided a candidate.
Here is an example of what I thought Lions Clubs do:
(Wisconsin)LIONS CLUB DONATES $500 TO DEPARTMENT TOWARD DEFIBS
The Kronenwetter Lions Club, represented by Emil and Dianne Wasniewski, donated $500 to the police department to be used in purchasing five defibrillators (AED's) for our patrol cars.
A majority of the time our officers are first on scene to medical emergencies, and these AED's will help our officers provide life saving measures quickly.
