BCHD board election

10-22-20 - Beach Reporter

In the Beach Cities Health District election, it’s disappointing to see little emphasis placed on the proposed massive construction development of the campus. Suggested questions went unanswered during the candidates’ forum, even a lack of answers from the two challengers.

Neighbors are outraged with the three incumbents supporting the proposed $500 million Prospect Ave. construction project. It’s partially funded by investors. When investors get their return, there isn’t much left for the taxpayer. Meanwhile, the project can be scrapped, and funding can be obtained for only $70 million to retrofit existing buildings.

The two challengers in this campaign must step up and tell us what they're going to do to change the course of this project. Will they support remodeling existing buildings? If they don’t have more to say, they will not get the support they need to win an election.
