In fact, Satterfield pointed out, it was the rush last year to push the sale of the sec- ond set of bonds so they could take advantage of low- er construction costs that got the district in trouble in the first place. Martin Brutlag, one of the self-described "gang of five," said, "This initiative is more about the hospital board than it is about the hospital," an honest but per- haps unsettling idea, since the board seems certain that the tax cap, if passed, will mark the end of the new hospital. Board director Fred Thon, usually a quiet force on the board, had a number of sig- nificant points to make at the meeting. He said the hospital is in "the business of providing health care in the communi- ty and, just like board mem- bers of a business, it's often that the board disagrees with the people running that business and has to step in and correct things." 'Thon went on to say he understood the communi- ty's concerns "based on what happened." Currently, however, he believes that if those who voted for the peti- tion "still feel the same way ... it's because you haven't made an effort to listen to what we've told you since the time it happened., and if you think we haven't ex- plained what happened, it's unfortunate." He said those backing the tax cap are thinking about the present and "how much they're paying in taxes, and that's all they care about," whereas, the board is charged with the fiduciary responsibility for the hospi- tal now and in the future. Thon spoke, finally, to the community discord that the hospital tax has caused. "We have a big wound in the commUnity," he said, "and regardless of who wounded whom first, I know who's keeping it fes- tering." al seniors Legal Services of North- ern California is primarily a legal aid organization fo- cusing on legal needs of per- sons with very low income and elders.
