Where’s the Home surplus?

Editor, OBSERVER:

Government for who? Thought it was for the people.

Thanks go to the few legislators who are and saved the Chautauqua County Home from being sold to Altitude Health Services.

I am disappointed our legislator did; who changed his decision? You said it well, Frank Lisa, Sr.: “Remember in November the 16 who voted to sell!” What about the consultants hired and came back with a $2 million savings? Why not give it a try? It is great the CSEA is committing to help cut costs. The county investing $60 million for renovations and then selling it for $16 million is outrageous.

On “Senior Report” a commentator spoke about a $5 million surplus the Home has, and not sure why the media does not tell about it. We have a beautiful facility; if it was located in the south part of the county more might be in favor of keeping it.
