Does Rich Gordon endorse the Sequoia Healthcare District?

Original post made by Jack Hickey on Apr 5, 2013

In a recent presentation to the San Carlos Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee this morning, a PowerPoint presentation created by District PR consulting firm, MTK Communications (Don Shoecraft, was delivered by Sequoia Healthcare District CEO Lee Michelson. See:Web Link
In that presentation, a clearly recognizable greyed out likeness of Rich Gordon appeared. What was not clear, is whether this was intended to convey a message. Or, if Assemblyman Gordon approved of the implied endorsement which the presence of his image suggested.

Healthy communities are something we all value. The question is, should the two Hospital Districts (a.k.a. Healthcare Districts)which no longer own hospitals continue collecting property taxes which otherwise would go directly to schools, cities, the county and other districts.

In response to my request for an electronic copy of the PowerPoint presentation, delivered to the San Carlos Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee by Sequoia Healthcare District CEO Lee Michelson, a low quality Vimeo of the presentation with narration by Lee was posted on the District website.

Rich Gordon will do whatever his union puppet masters tell him to do. If that's support the Sequoia Healthcare District, that's what he'll do. It doesn't take much thought to figure out what he will support.
