Maybe it's time to call the whole thing off.
The Heffernan Memorial Hospital board oversees the operations of Calexico hospital, a hospital that doesn't operate, surgically or otherwise, and hasn't operated in a long time. When it was running in recent years it didn't run well. Employees weren't paid, bills weren't paid, surgical instruments weren't clean, corruption was rampant.
Now the two people with experience on the board are leaving. Cindy Aguilar has resigned and Jack Anderson has not been attending meetings and the board appears ready to boot him.
Maybe Anderson's ouster isn't such a bad thing. Those who know him know his reputation and his "problems," despite his years of trying to provide service to the community. Further, one fellow board member has publicly criticized him for airing the district's closed-session matters to the City Council.
